    Hi. Whilst i am no expert, your mole looks completely normal. It appears to have even borders, no irregularity in colour. When looking at moles always remember the ABCDE. A stands for asymmetry. B stands for border. C stands for colour. D stands for diameter. E stands for evolving. If it bothers you get it checked out by an expert who can give you a more definitive answer. But from what i can tell it looks fine. Good luck.

      thanks fot the reply. im not sure why i jjst started thinking about it more. its been there so long, hasnt caused problems, and has stayed the same. i looked up the ABCDE method, and i would have to agree with you. its been the same size, and never changed. i guess i only started thinkng about it because its a little bigger than some of my other frckles/moles.

      Hi there. Although i respect your comment, you are right about nodular melanoma,. But nodular melanoma is not as common as the more common melanomas. The ABCDE rule does apply to these. I should know i work in a skin cancer clinic.

      You actually did say that the ABCDE rule doesnt apply. Please dont insult my intelligence when i told you i work in a skin cancer clinic. Cos i do. What i said was looking at it in a photo is not the same as having it looked at PROPERLY. His mole does not look like a melanoma but it needs looking at properly. Not just a photo. Whilst you were right about nodular melanona you are wrong about the other 3 more common melanomas that the ABCDE rule does apply to. Just because i may work in a skin cancer clinic does not mean i can give him a definitive answer without assessing it properly. Dont come on here to argue with people. People come on this site looking for advise. Not to pick fights with people. Have a good day/ night. Where ever you come from.

      You said that the ABCDE rule doesnt apply to all melanomas, namely nodular melanoma, which is the only one you are right about. I state to you that i do work in a skin cancer clinic but dont always like to advertise it. Simple as that. Oh, & i can read very well. What do you suggest i do, get the bloke to come through the phone so i can look at him! The ABCDE rule DOES apply to almost all melanomas . The only exception is nodular. ABCDE rule. Look it up. If the place i work for found out i was giving advice without a proper assessment could land me in hot water. THATS why i tell people to get it checked if not sure.

      If i recall correctly i simply replied to your post in the beginning & YOU were the one who keeps replying. So you grow the f**k up! You wanna argue! That was not my intention to begin with. You state that i can't read, well if you can read properly i DID say that you were right about nodular melanoma just not the others. But i guess you seem to know it all einstein.
