Small brown mole on palm

I have a small,flat brown mole on the palm of my hand. It has been there for at least a couple of years. I have not noticed any itching, tingling, growth, or irritation. I asked my doctor and he referred me to a dermatologist, who I have not seen yet. This does not look like any pictures of skin cancer that I have seen, but should I be concerned?

Not really.  Moles on the palms and soles are not as suspicious as they are often made to sound.  I'd keep the appointment, but what you're probably going to hear is that the mole is fine and can stay on you indefinitely.

Best.
