Any changes in size , shape , colour or texture.

It looks like a vascular malformations from what I can make out of this picture and nothing needs to be done about it.

Will it go away
Expert:  Dr Hayat replied 9 days ago.

If its a vascular malformation that needs a cautery for it to go away. Even if it stays its not cancer..
