I have a raised black spot on my vaginal lip. Do people get moles there?

Sure but: It is certainly possible to have a mole or birth mark on the vagina. If it is new, has changed in size or color though it should be looked at by your doctor to make sure that is all it is.

See doctor: If you have been treated for this or any condition and it did not go away you need to be re-evaluated. Any changes in skin color or texture should be evaluated.

I have a "mole" (black spot) on my upper gums just above my two front teeth. I have had the black spot for 3 years. Is there anyway I can get that re?

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.

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.

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.

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 as you age. I would have the kids doc look at it at his next visit to assess it's character. Most are quite innocent in that age group.

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.

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.

Mole: Hairs are often found in congenital nevi (birth marks). The fact that it is two toned (brown with a tiny black area) warrants an examination by a dermatologist.
