If you have a hx: Of melanoma it be hooves you to have pigmented lesions checked out, there is no reason to worry as that doesn't help. Just have it checked out, it quite possibly can be nothing to be concerned about.

MY OPINION: I always say; "If I'm worried, or my patient is worried, biopsy." It's a small thing that can save a life.
