I woke up this morning with a drop of blood in my undies. I'm post menopausal so I took a look to see what was there and I saw two small raised black dots on my vagina lips. ..one on each side.:o

As a breast cancer survivor, I'm extremely concerned. I will see a doctor but should I see a skin doctor or my gynecologist?

Also wondered if anyone else has experienced this...

All I can say is...NOT AGAIN!:(

I'm sorry you're going through this! I have had a couple of black moles (some even raised a little) removed in this same spot, and mine all came back fine. Just dark pigmented skin. However, it's always safe to get it checked. If I were you, I'd start with my gyno, and if need be, he/she will send you to a gynocological dermatologist. :) It's going to be fine! Is there a chance they've been there for a long time, and you haven't noticed? Or did they come up overnight almost? Praying for you! :angel:

I've have the same problem, the spots closer to the inside of the lips aren't raised they are just dark but the ones closer to the outside are raised. In the past couple months I've noticed more of them but unfortunately I don't have health coverage so I can't go and do anything about it. I was concerned it was an STD or Melanoma :confused: and still am kind of concerned because there are more now than before. :( It's also makes me very selfconscious.

As for the blood spots, my mother told me that for about 2 years after going through menopause that she would seldomly notice faint spotting. When she asked the doctor about it he said it was normal for some.

hey, i was looking for info online to try and find out what this is cause i found them too. i didnt tell anyone but in my child development/sex ed class we are allowed to write questions on cards for the nurse and a certified midwife to come in and answer them privetly. so i wrote one about it. i cant find any information on what i have and its freaking me out that it might be cancer. im glad to see im not the only one and to hear it may only be moles but im still worried. they are small black spots i only saw two and the area around it is darker, i thought it was supposed to be light pink like the inside of your mouth. if you dont mind me asking if its like this with you girls too??

I really don't have anything to add, except I really hope this turns out to be nothing. Hopefully, a poster with the name Oleander will see this and offer some words of advice. She has been battling Bowens, which is skin cancer of genetalia (sp?), and she can give some great insight into the diagnosis and treatment of this area. She would also be able to answer any questions you might have.
