I have a mole, round, even color, but with a small black dot in the middle. Like someone took a sharpie and put a dot there. I had it looked at in July, the dermatologist said it looked completely normal. I just went and got a 2nd opinion on it today while I was at another dermatologist's office for another reason. The nurse practitioner said it was worth getting a biopsy. I asked her if she was concerned and she said, yes because the dot is a different color and it's black. The mole has not changed since I first got it looked at. I would just like another "opinion" if you think the mole should be a cause for concern. Thanks!!
From the symptoms it can be a compound mole or a atypical mole. Both are benign conditions. If you notice changes in the mole's/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.
