If there is any doubt, get checked out. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

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?

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.
