Mark on leg from birth with uneven appearance. BIRTHMARK?

Resolved Question:

Hello

I have had this mark on my right leg all my life; i have always been told it's a birthmark by my parents but I've never seen a picture online of a birth mark that looks similar.

I do not think it's changed over time however with its uneven appearance I would like to know if it's a possible melanoma.

Hello

Thanks for posting your query at DoctorSpring.com
I can understand your concern. I reviewed the pictures.

I would recommend that you get the mole investigated further. Its possible for a birthmark like this to be present and then get changes over a period of time.

It's always best to get it investigated. You could ask your dermatologist to do a dermatoscopy and a biopsy if required.

Please let me know if you have any queries.
Take care

in its present state right now would you consider it to be suspicious? How urgent is an appointment with a dermatologist, where I live we have to wait months

Hello,
As of now, there is nothing urgent about the mark.
When you do get a chance, you should go ahead and get it investigated.
I will reassure you, there is no urgency in getting the investigations done.

Regards.
