Sorry. Just one more question. NHS website shows a photo of a mole that has different colours as suspicious (attached). I believe the last photo I have sent has lighter or darker areas but is it considered the same colour?Sorry I have a degree of colour blindness therefore it is difficult to make sure what I am seeing is correct.

This much of a color variation is there in many moles and is taken as normal..

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
the colour variation needs to be very distinct like the one on NHS website to be suspicious?

Yes . Exactly..
