Hello, I am worried about my mole. It was brown as I can remember, and now, it seems it changed colour to black - brown. I know it is a small mole, but nevertheless, I would like to check what do you think? I have never been to dermatologist, for simple reason... I have few moles only and I was never worried that something can happened, till now.

From your photo it has a waxy, "stuck-on" appearance consistent with a sebhorreic keratosis, which is a very common benign type of mole. However, I would recommend a clinical examination with a dermatoscope (magnification with bright light) to confirm this, possibly followed by a biopsy to confirm the histology. Best wishes.
Mole changing color
Get it checked
Hi,It is good that you have asked this question. Moles can be simple and benign and you can have them from birth with no changes, however if they start to show changes you should have them checked out. Moles that either change in color, change shape or have an irregular shape, become raised or start to bleed need to be checked as soon as possible to make sure that they are not becoming something sinister. A lot of the time, they will be nothing to worry about but you have it checked by a dermatologist just to make sure.
