Age spot that changes in appearance
I have an age spot under my left eye that has been there since starting harmone treatment several years ago.  I have not been concerned about it and have tried several fade creams etc to get rid of it, but it is still there.  I have recently noticed it is somewhat raised now and harder to cover with makeup.  I am a bit concerned because it has raised and itches slightly at different times.  Should I spend the money (no insurance) to get it checked or is it just a raised age spot now?

Hello,
Since the age spot has changed in appearance, so definitely it needs to be evaluated. Possibility of actinic or seborrheic keratosis is always there. Moreover If you notice changes in the mark’s color, height, size or shape, you should have a dermatologist evaluate it. You also should have it checked if it bleeds, oozes, itches, appear scaly, or become tender or painful.Otherwise it should be left as such.

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 dermatologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
