No. But I am not a dermatologist. Why don’t you just get it checked out? No one on here can say for definite.

No I have one nearly identical and I've had it over 15 years but go get checked if you're concerned or if it's new. Better safe than sorry x

Looks ok to me too. But as the others have said we are not experts. Ask your surgery for a practice nurse appointment, they have more experience and will know if it looks odd or not.

Has it changed?

clpsmum Fri 26-Jul-19 16:48:29

No but always best to check

Thankyou everyone. Im not sure if
Its changed its always been that size but I cant say Ive noticed the border of it before but maybe I am just analysing it more. I think I will get it checked just to be safe. Its 5mm currently.

A mole like that has just appeared on the back of my thigh yesterday. Lumpy, firm, black with a red Border and it stings. I googled and it’s not great. My appt is on Tuesday and I’m just very worried. Get yours checked out

@sugarprincess67 I managed to get last minute appointment and mine is fine apparently. Hopefully same for you!

I would get it checked, but I am paranoid about moles having lost my mum to melanoma.

@banburybun aww yes thats very understandable. Thankfully GP checked and all fine apparently.

I’m so sorry to hear about your mum 💗May she rest in the highest rank of paradise. I’ve been so worried the whole day, thinking the worst - Tuesday can’t come quick enough. I’ve got two little girls. I’ll post a photo of it and tell me what you think

Glad your mole is ok OP.
@SugarPrincess67 yours sounds more like a bite or something your body has reacted too? If it's suddenly appeared?

SugarPrincess67 Sat 27-Jul-19 00:10:52

I hope it’s just a bite! Fingers crossed it’s just a bite

Is it a tick Sugar? Can't make it out properly on the pic. Have you been to chemist?

Summersunshine2 Sat 27-Jul-19 00:18:31

Or is it filled with blood that has gone black?

SugarPrincess67 Sat 27-Jul-19 00:23:09

I don’t know what a tick sugar but I googled it. I haven’t had any red meat in a few days . It’s not scabby it feels like a mole only firmer and stings

Summersunshine2 Sat 27-Jul-19 00:34:33

I think you have a blood filled blister @SugarPrincess67

Summersunshine2 Sat 27-Jul-19 00:36:51

This is a picture of blood filled blister. Which is nothing to worry about. Obviously no one can diagnose you over the internet but I think you should stop thinking the worst. Go to the walk in centre to put your mind at ease. And update us to let us know you are ok smile

SugarPrincess67 Sat 27-Jul-19 00:41:49

You’ve helped ease my mind! I’m praying that it’s a blood blister! I’m going to stop googling until I’ve seen a doctor. And once I have- I’ll let you guys know

Summersunshine2 Sat 27-Jul-19 00:44:56

Glad we have helped a little. I'm a worrier too!

SugarPrincess67 Wed 31-Jul-19 22:45:43

Hey guys, so I went to doctors yesterday. It wasn’t a blood blister so I’ve been sent to
A specialist in the next week. The mole has become a little bigger and has flattened too

Summersunshine2 Fri 02-Aug-19 22:38:03

@SugarPrincess67 please let us know how you get on at the specialists. Hopefully nothing to worry about.
