neck moles
I have three moles on my neck. Two are of normal shape and size but one is small in size, flesh colored and shaped like a small baby toe with a  light colored hard toenail  growing out of it. Should I be worried ? I have never seen nor heard of anything like this before. (it actually looks just like a small thick hard toenail) do anyone know anything about this type of mole? all three are located side by side.

Hello,
I cannot confirm anything without examination,but it can be a cutaneous horn.In this, a cone-shaped protuberance arises on the skin caused by overgrowth of the most superficial layer of skin (epidermis).

Treatment includes freezing with cryotherapy,curettage and electrodessication,using chemotherapy agents or laser treatment.I would suggest that you get it evaluated from a dermatologist and discuss this possibility and treatment options.

I hope that helps. Take care and pls do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional doubts. Kind regards.
