Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco or alcohol in any form. ...Read more

This will be examined under the microscope to tell whether or not you have melanoma. What you describe would seem rather low probability of melanoma though. ...Read more
