    Does it sound and look like a normal skin mole or not?

    A very small skin mole (about 3 mm) appeared on one of my fingers. It was several months ago. It's really small, but I noticed that it is brown, while a part of it (very SMALL part) is black. Like - everything is brown, and it has one black line on it. Here is a picture of it (not very good quality so that black part can't be seen):

    Is it normal for a small part of a small skin mole that doesn't grow bigger, doesn't itch or anything.....to be black? I am really scared of melanoma......

    The picture is not as clear as it needs to be, however, to me it does not look like a normal skin mole. Best to see a dermatologist and be sure.

    It looks inflamed, too much red with dark center which could be indication of skin cancer.

    Obviously the picture isn't good........crappy resolution, that's why.

    It's not red or inflamed in reality, the skin around it is normal. The skin mole looks normal on the first look as well. And I forgot to mention this skin mole is more like a small fleck, it can't even be touched. I didn't measure it, but it's not bigger than 3 mm, maybe it's even smaller. It looks like a dot. Also it doesn't seem the center is what is dark, but it looks like there is a dark "line" on it.

    I am confused though and scared now though.

    I went to the dermatlogist in the hospital, and the skin mole is ok, as well as the other moles too. She just looked at it and said it's normal. I used the situation to make her check the other moles as well, and they are good as well. The whole examination didn't last longer than 2 minutes.

    I feel a relief now

    Sometimes some freckles/moles may look a little funny but they turn out to be nothing. I have a few freckles/moles that are light brown with a dot of dark brown in the center of it. I've had them checked out and the derm said they were just fine. They look like my other ones so - nothing to worry about.
