Do I have skin cancer?

Hey guys, today, (5:45 pm right now), i just got home from tennis after school (i am 14 years old), and i discovered a huge black mole on my big toe. I have never noticed it before, but it could have been slowly growing over time, i dont know.

I really hope its not cancerous or anything. Please tell me what I should do next.

Oh yeah, and lastly, i noticed it, because in tennis, my big toe was hurting just a bit when i ran really hard, so i checked it out when i came home.

Its a milimeter over 1/4 inch in diameter, and is a millimeter high (approx.)

Thanks for the help!

Re: Do I have skin cancer?

Hello! It's probably nothing, but if this is something that you've noticed and seems a bit weird, it's worth having it checked out. Sometimes moles that look to be melanoma really aren't, and those that look absolutely harmless really are. Since you are 14, have you shown this to one of your parents? Please do so, and then let them know you would like to have it checked out.
