Looks like it has a scab....have you been picking at it?

has it changed recently?

Customer: replied 3 days ago.
no I didn't or intentionaly, color doesn't change but it gets a little bit bigger

The best thing to do is consult with a dermatologist. If needed it can be removed.

That being said it doesn't look like a serious cancer etc. and I do not believe it needs any treatment right away....

Does this make sense to you?
