Thanks for posting your query at

Please give some history about this lesion. Since when you have it, where is it, how have tried to treat it, does it cause any symptoms?

Also please send a slightly zoomed out picture as the lesion is not clearly seen in the pictures you sent.


Patient replied :

I have had it for at least 5 to 7 years. It used to be flesh colored but turned colours maybe 3 or 4 years old patientago. It is on the outside of my right thigh, kind of near my hip. I haven't really tried anything to treat it as it hasn't really bothered me. It occationally feels itchy but I am not sure if that is the cause or just dry skin type of thing.


Thanks for your reply.

This seems to be a dermatofibroma which is like a benign tumor which causes no harm.

I would recommend that you visit your doctor to get it excised.

That would help getting it resolved.

Please let me know if you have any queries.

Take care
