Dr. Boris Aronzon
Anesthesiology 24 years experience
Evaluation: See dermatologist to rule out melanoma.
Dr. Carol Van der Harst
Physical Medicine and Rehabilitation 35 years experience
Concerning: A dark skin lesion larger then the size of a pencil eraser, or with a ragged edge needs to be examined by a physician for biopsy. The change, from what was there before, is important. Make an appointment and get peace of mind.
