Hello

Thanks for posting your query.

Could you please send one more photo of the lesion which is a bit zoomed out ?

From the picture you have sent it seems seborrheic keratosis. It is like dead skin and has only cosmetic significance. The treatment would be excision or burning it off by your dermatologist.

Hope this helps, please feel free to discuss further.

Thanks

Hello,

Thanks for your reply. The picture you have sent is of seborrheic keratosis. It is like dead skin and has only cosmetic significance. It's not a mole and nothing to worry about.

However it's important to treat it as it sends to be growing in size, there are chances it can get inflamed and also become irritating. The treatment would be excision or burning it off by your dermatologist.

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Take care.
