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 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?

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

Had benign mole surgically removed for cosmetic reasons. Can left over tissue turn malignant over time? How will I know if turns malignant if no mole
Had a benign-looking mole surgically excised for cosmetic reasons. For some reason the Dr did not send for pathology. Do I have any options now to check the tissue to make sure the area is benign? Or do I have to wait to see if something grows back?
Tissue availability: If the doctor did not submit the mole for examination by a pathologist at the time of removal, the tissue is unlikely to be available now. It is very unlikely that mole was anything other than benign, however, one needs to keep in mind that a pathologist makes the final diagnosis. I wish you good health. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
