I noticed white/pink patch on left leg lateral malleolus. It is neither painful nor itchy. Is it a concern? I am worried.
Dermatology is, in large part, a visual diagnosis. That being said, anytime I am worried, or you, the patient, is worried, I biopsy the lesion. The exception is when the lesion is so easily diagnosed, which happens many times, a biopsy is not called for. Talk to your doctor.
