Infectious, cancerous, and benign moles can all be the cause that i can't tell from here, but they can. There is a group in your city with a 'pigmented nevus clinic' ...Choose a dermatologist or go there. ...Read more

However, it may be a std if sexually active, but it is hard to tell what kind of infection without seeing it. ...Read more
