Flesh Colored Mole
I grew a sudden bump on my forearm. It looks like a 1/8" flesh colored mole. It has red borders. Its painless unless touched. It started itching today?
The body is composed of tissue that are classically described as beiing derived from three basic embyonic layers known as the endoderm, mesoderm and ectoderm that then differentiate into the structures that compose the body such as skin, soft tissues, bone, muscle, organs, etc. Stem cells are not differentiated and have the potential to ...Read more
I've had a mole on my chin for at least 10 years now. It's small, round, flesh-colored, and a little shiny. Never changed. Is the shine normal?
No changes?: Generally if you have a skin lesion for 10 years without any change in size or appearance it is likely nothing to worry about. However sometimes a basal cell skin cancer can have a shiny pearly appearance and can grow slowly. If it bothers you at all it would be easy to remove and test it to be sure. If it doesn't bother you keep a close watch for any changes or have your MD look at it. ...Read more

I have a growth on my face that looks like a small bump. Is it a skin tag or a mole? How can I tell? It's flesh-colored.

I have a mole between my toes and wanted to know if part of a mole can fall off. It was raised and brown now the lump is flat and dark flesh colored.
Maybe, maybe not.: I suppose it could, but I'm more inclined to believe that the mole could be, in reality, a callus. It is not uncommon for them to be between the toes, mainly because of the potential for the toes to rub against each other. They can cause a small amount of bleeding which would make it look brown and raised. When it comes off, it would be flat and have darker color. To remove all doubt, see a doc. ...Read more
I have a flesh colour mole on my scalp, had it all my life, but I do think it is a little larger but i'm unsure could this be cancerous?
It's possible: It doesn't sound too concerning since it's been there your whole life. However, if it's getting larger, you really should have it looked at and possibly removed. The only way to know if something is skin cancer is to biopsy it. And rarely, melanomas can be flesh colored. Let a doctor decide whether it needs to be removed. And avoid sun exposure on your scalp! ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
