    dark spot appeared on my lip

    hello all can anybody give me any advice on this new condition of mine? About 3 months ago a small dark spot appeared on my bottom lip, over the next month or so it grew to just a bit smaller than the size of an @ on your keyboard, it is symetrical, flat and browny black in colour, went to doctor who sent me to specialist who says he is 99% certain that it is nothing to worry about but 'as a precaution' wants to remove it with a punch biopsy next week?!! was not so worried until then, anyone got any similar experience? Would love to hear from you thanks a loy guys, Mel

    No advice, but I have a dark purplish spot on my bottom lip on the left side. I've been keeping an eye on it and it hasn't changed since I first noticed it. I think I may have bruised it and it's like a scar? Keep us posted as to what you find out. I may need to have mine looked at.

    hi caring mom, i will let you know how i get on, i go for the biopsy next wed 29th august, and they said i should get the results 2 weeks later unless it is anything Major' in which case they would let me know sooner, IM VERY SCARED! Perhaps you should go to the dermatologist anyway as ive learned that any new blemishes/moles/freckles etc. should be investigated straight away, SO GO! Mel

    Yeah, I should do that! I see a my surgeon this week for a follow up and may ask him about it. I'm sure he's seen things like this before.
    Good luck to you and I'll be sure and check here in a couple of weeks.

    Re: dark spot appeared on my lip

    hi all, just to let yoy know that i went today for my results and as i thought it was good news thank god! what i had removed is known as a 'benign melanotic macule' in other words a harmless freckle on my lip. So thats a relief, however it should be pointed out that I have learned that ANY new mole/mark blemish or a change in appearance of an existing mole should ALWAYS be investigated! Take care love Mel x
