Hi I would really appreciate any help or advice anybody can offer. I've always had a small raised mole on my eyelid which is coloured a couple of shades darker than my skin. But a couple of months ago a similar white spot about 2mm above this mole it is also slightly raised and although I thought at first it was just a spot it clearly isn't, it's like a bright white replica of the original but firmer. This week another of these mole/spot things has appeared about 4mm below the original mole. Can anybody shed any light on this. I have very pale white skin and do not tan only burn so I am more than a little concerned. Should I get this checked out? Or is this a common thing? Any info more than welcome.

I would get it checked out to be on the safe side.

Thanks I think I should, I'm sure it's nothing but it's still rather worrying if not only the thought that my eyelid could become covered in these things.

I'm pretty sure they wouldn't qualify as melanoma but I'm wondering if basal cell would be a possibility.

I would stop looking at pics on the internet and get it checked out. It can make you crazy. Let us know how the dr visit goes.
