Last week I noticed a dime-sized flat brown pigmented splotch on my upper right thigh in my groin area. It is almost round and does not itch. It is not scaly. I have been married seven years and am in a monogamous relationship. I am wondering if this is some type of skin infection such as tinea versiclor, even though it does not look like it does in pictures I've seen. Can anyone offer advice as to what this spot could be?
A couple of months ago I started noticing on my upper thigh area that I was getting 2 brown circles that were flat. Now they have both grown to a quarter size circle and I see 3 new little ones coming in. I'm 41 years old and I don't have age spots anywhere else on my body and everywhere I have read it said it is common to have them on your arms and face.
look up seborrheic keratosis. i am pretty confidant that is what you may have. they are age related growths. benign and simply a cosmetic nuisance. they can come up anywhere including your scalp and are very very common after 30 years of age if you have spent any amount of time in the sun
Thank you for your response. I went to my ob gyn for my annual and had told him about it and he thought that I was too young for age spots, so once he took a look at them he said 'Oh nothing to worry about, they are, I like to call them "maturity spots"! lol So they are age spots, which they have not grown any larger since. He said just be happy theres not one on the end of my nose.....quite charming isn't he?
I had a little growth on my head and I told by three doctors at VA that it was nothing. Well a year of that and I went to my wife's derm. It was cancer. Melonamo. I went thur hell with it and still going thur hell. Get it check out again.

Heylo I noticed a small discoloration almost birthmark like in appearance in my pubic area almost a year ago. In recent months I've noticed more areas and a darker brown color. I'm 15 and always assumed it was something due to poor hygiene but I bathe regularly and recently as well in the past have washed intensively so as to remove these blemishes. I can greatly reduce the coloration but never fully remove these areas. Is this just some buildup from sweat or a fungal infection?
Would appreciate any response. Thanks.
