I have had this freckle in the corner of my eye for years (since I was 14, I'm now 21) are there any causes for concern? (photo)

I think it has grown since then but I haven't paid as much attention to it as I should've.

Fortunately the spot seems to be something we call

{{ voteCount >= 0 ? '+' + (voteCount + 1) : (voteCount + 1) }}

melanosis which is like a freckle and of course is benign...as long as it stays round and uniform and doesn't grow, there's nothing to worry about...but as with anything else, any change warrants a visit to the doctor's office...
