I have a very large Birthmark on the upper part on the back on my leg. I have a lot of moles on me, I would say 75 . Im usually out in the sun a lot, so i was kind of worried about them being cancerous. I Went to the dermatologist, they told me not to worry about them! Recently I noticed on the inside of my birthmark it was getting dry, and on the insdie of my large mole ( w hich is flat) I have a small mole that is above skin
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am really glad to help you out. Dryness of mole should be evaluated but if there is ryness of skin above the mole then it can be due to xerosis skin.
Melanoma has an irregular border, is asymmetrical, uneven color and increasing in size. If you notice changes in the mole's/markâs color, height, size or shape, you should have a dermatologist evaluate it.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations, and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care.
