Hello. I'm Dr Chip
Could you please post a picture of that for me here?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Hi, thank you for your time. Please see the attached picture. It is located at the top of my thigh by the groin.

Got it--hold on please

How long have you had that?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
About 6 months

Of course I can only go by the picture

While it looks benign--one colour, sharp edges/margins--the nodularity (bumpiness) and the size are concerning

I don't think it's a melanoma but I'm obligated to advise you to have a dermatologist actually examine this

Please let me know if you need any more information

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Thank you very much for you help. I will make an appointment with the dermatologist.

My pleasure

I'm here if you ever need me again
