    Tiny black spot found on lifelong mole

    I'm a 24 year old female and I have a decent amount of moles on my body and fairly sensitive skin. I don't check my moles as much as I should but tonight I found a small, abnormally shaped black spot on a small mole that I have always had on my shoulder. It looks a little dry but after picking at it a little I have confirmed that it is not a scab. Should I be concerned? My mole is about the size of a nailhead and the black spot takes up maybe a quarter of it.

    Hey there, I have something very similar. My boyfriend pointed out on a dark brown spot in a mole on my back. I recall having a mole for years but I just don't know if the dark spot was there or not. The mole is slightly bigger than a pencil eraser and a dark spot is maybe 2mm or so (small). Sometimes, melanoma can arise from an existing mole, so I just got the whole thing removed and sent for biopsy. The doc did say it might be an abnormal mole but only biopsy can provide an answer. So my suggestion to you is to have it checked out just to be safe. Don't delay. Early stage melanomas have nearly 100% survival with proper treatment however the later stages aren't that fortunate.

    Hi,

    Just wondering how this turned out? Very worried about my husbands mole. Have found way too many scary things on the internet today.
