Surgical incision: Can be removed by surgical incision and the scar that will replace it will be less noticable. The removal should be by someone who can also send it for biopsy because it could also be a melanoma even though quire rare. ...Read more

I have sudden (over past 3 – 5 weeks?) flat, small, black spot on my outer hand. I don't remember a mole being there, but could have been a tiny one?

I have sudden (over past 3 – 5 weeks?) flat, small, black spot on my outer hand.  I don't remember a mole being there, but could have been a tiny one?

While you can get: Acquired moles (that just appear), and they can be ok, I would get a skin check with your dermatologist and make sure all moles are fine. If anything is increasing in size, bleeding, hurting or changing color get in quickly. ...Read more

Not preg, have a tiny brown/black spot on bottom of left nipple, you know how the nip is divided into parts? 1 part is discolored brown cancer or mole

Hard to tell : It is hard to answer your question without an examination. It is concerning when moles change — change in size, color, become irregularly shaped, itch, bleed. Most moles are relatively easy to remove and test. Please see your primary doctor or a surgeon to see if this needs to be removed and tested. ...Read more

My 4 year old son has a black spot on his scalp. It is the size of a small mole, it is soft and doesn't seem to bother him. Any idea what it is?

My 4 year old son has a black spot on his scalp. It is the size of a small mole, it is soft and doesn't seem to bother him. Any idea what it is?

Likely a mole: Skin imperfections are common and appear more & more than you age. I would have the kids doc look at it at his next visit to assess its character. Most are quite innocent in that age group. ...Read more

I have a black spot on my hand but I am not sure if it is a blood blister or a mole it has been there for about one and a half weeks?

I have a black spot on my hand but I am not sure if it is a blood blister or a mole it has been there for about one and a half weeks?

Unclear: Blood blisters are usually painful, and related to pressure or trauma though not infrequently there may be no recollection of a specific event. They can take several weeks to resolve as the blood gets reabsorbed by the body. A mole typically is not painful, and would not change much over a month. So time would likely help answer this question for you. If worse, please have it examined. ...Read more

An asymmetrical brown mole with black spot appeared seemingly overnight on the inside of my bicep. I work outdoors in Texas. Should I be worried?

An asymmetrical brown mole with black spot appeared seemingly overnight on the inside of my bicep. I work outdoors in Texas. Should I be worried?

Use sunscreen: Take a picture of your sneaky mole. Melanomas do not just pop-up overnight. If you are worried about a particular mole changing appearance, measure it and check it again in a month. Take a vitamin D supplement rather than sunbathe. One 5,000 iu cap/week likely will prevent hypovitaminosis D, and the rate of melanomas is skyrocketing from tanning booths. ...Read more

My 5 y/o has newly developed an asymptomatic black spot in anterior frenulum of his tougue. He had a skin lesion excision which turns out to be dysplastic nevi. Should I get him checked for it?

My 5 y/o has newly developed an asymptomatic black spot in anterior frenulum of his tougue. He had a skin lesion excision which turns out to be dysplastic nevi.  Should I get him checked for it?

Absolutely: Particularly since he has already had a dysplastic nevus, he may be at greater risk to develop melanomas. Any black or multicolored spot on his skin or a mucous membrane (like in the mouth) should at least be checked out by a dermatologist (or, in this case, ear, nose and throat specialist). ...Read more

I have foliculitus and get abscesses in my vaginal area now have two black spot like bumps on my Mons pubis are these scars or should I be worried?

I have foliculitus and get abscesses in my vaginal area now have two black spot like bumps on my Mons pubis are these scars or should I be worried?

Don't worry.: Hi Emalou,

Folliculitis is very common where there are large sweat glands and course hair like under the arms and in the groin area. Bacteria get down in the follicles and begin to grow forming small abscesses. They often are noticed in various stages of healing. I believe that this is what you are seeing. Continue to treat the infection with topical antibiotics or antibiotics by mouth. ...Read more

I have a small black spot, just beside my clitoris. It's slightly raised and sensitive to touch. It can also get a little itchy. Any ideas what it is?

I have a small black spot, just beside my clitoris. It's slightly raised and sensitive to touch. It can also get a little itchy. Any ideas what it is?

Must be seen.: It is most likely benign but it need to be seen to make sure it is not a melanoma. If you have had it all your life and it has not changed and is smooth and regular it is probably fine. If it is new, irregular of has different areas of color it might not be. It just needs to be looked at to determine that and the sooner the better. ...Read more

My 2 year old (on Tuesday!) son has a round black spot on his tongue. It feels raised. Any ideas what it is? Should I get him evaluated now?

Black tongue: Could be normal in dark skinned individuals however sudden changes could be due to infections; yeast, medications including antibiotics or inadequate oral hygiene & less commonly, due to other health conditions. Try brushing the area with soft bristle tooth brush / toothpaste at least twice daily, if persistent or if other assoc. Symptoms, get him evaluated. Take care. ...Read more

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

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

I have medium-sized black spot on my penis head and smaller of end of foreskin. don't know why or how to get rid. I am cuircumsized.

Watch: It may be best to leave the spots alone. These may be moles and like moles anywhere else, examine these periodically, if the spot doubles in size, develops a nodule, changes color, bleeds or ulcerates, see a doctor.
For good health — Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex. ...Read more
