Ive just noticed a tanned patch with what looks like a mole

This answer was rated:

Ive just noticed a tanned patch with what looks like a mole on my bum cheek. I haven’t noticed this before and I’m unsure whether it is a mole as it is not raised at any point or if it’s just pigmentation. I’m concerned if it is a mole as it doesn’t look like any of the mole pictures online and wondering whether I should go to a doctors to get it checked. I’m 20 years old

Hello, my name is***** and I shall be assisting you today. I'm reviewing your query & will get back to you shortly. Thank you for your patience.

It does not show any suspicious signs visually which are asymmetrical borders raised and flat, the color is more or less homogenous and there is no ulceration or bleeding. The most characteristic and consistent finding of dangerous moles or moles that should be checked out is itching. If this is not itching then there is not much concern with a mole that looks like this. Having said that, I will still urge that you go and see a dermatologist for documentation of the characteristics and size, in the event that this mole appears to change over the course of the next 6 months, the doctor will have something to compare it with.
