I have a mole I'm concerned about.

Posted , 3 users are following.


About 2 years ago a mole appeared next to my left brow and after a little research found that moles frequently appear on people all the time so I stopped worrying about it and got on with my life until this morning.

I looked at it in the mirror and found that it's outer edge is darker in colour that the middle, it's not built like a lump and is flush with the skin around it. Also, and this simply could be psychology attached to the worry around it, I've been able to 'feel' it as if it's burning.

Because we're now at a Friday night my doctors is closed until Monday leaving me worrying over the weekend.

Can anybody help to tell me what this is? I've described it as best I can. If it helps I'm a Caucasian male and though the middle is a lighter colour than the darker outer edge it's still darker than the 'true' colour of my skin.

    Hi David,

    I know it's hard to ignore but if it makes you feel any better I had some similar to your's. They were removed and thankfully they were benign. On Monday book an appt. to be seen as it's good to have them checked sooner than later. Good luck

      Thank you.

      I posted here because the only thing I know about this subject is that the colour matters relating to it which is why I detailed it as much as I have.

      I'll book the appointment because it's better to be safe, many people are affected by this and turns out it's nothing so until I can see a doctor I'll focus on this.
