Is it normal for a woman to have a small black dot (mole like) mark on the lips of their lower area?

See a dermatologist: I assume you are referring to a black dot in your genital area? Yes, this can happen and be entirely benign. However, not all are benign so having a dermatologist examine you would be best. Sometimes a biopsy is necessary which would be a very minor procedure that could rule-out anything bad. ...Read more

Why do I have a black dot in my mouth, it sticks out a little? Its close to my lip but its inside my mouth. I've had it for like 10 years

Why do I have a black dot in my mouth, it sticks out a little? Its close to my lip but its inside my mouth. I've had it for like 10 years

Has it been the same: Has this lesion been the same for the whole 10 years? If so, it is probably not a huge concern, however, the safest course of action is to have your doctor look at it and remove it and send it for biopsy. While it is probably benign if it hasn't changed in 10 years, lesions can mutate to serious issues such as melanoma, which can be fatal. See your dr! ...Read more

How to tell my parents that I need biopsy to inspect my bump at my lip with a black dot at the center? How to tell them? I'm horrified. How?

That's odd....: If a person talks with his parents on a usual, normal basis, then there is nothing special about telling them about a bump that needs a biopsy. It is done the same way that any normal, everyday conversation is done. However, which doctor says the bump needs a biopsy? On the face, a specialized dermatologic surgeon or plastic surgeon can give an opinion. Presumably, it's not just a blackhead. ...Read more

Have a spot on outer vagina lips. Small smooth black dot. Just showed up one day. Just had pregnancy test, bacterial infection/STI Testing. All clean.

Pigmented lesion: This could be due to several things-- a vascular lesion, or a melanocytic (nevus-like) lesion. Given the small size and smooth surface, it is unlikely to be a problem, though if it is a melanocytic lesion, it bears watching, and possible removal if any enlargement of other change occurs. Vulvar melanoma is uncommon, but may develop from long-ignored precursor lesions. ...Read more

A black spot down lips & I often use to pull/pop it, then it become bigger. It happening from many years. Like a little black flesh growing. Any help?

See your doctor: I am concerned that you may have a dermatologic problem that will only be fixed by seeing your doctor. Continuing to pull/pop it and having it "get bigger" means that the process isn't getting better with manually decompressing the site. See your doctor before it turns into something more serious (if it hasn't already). ...Read more
