Does this look like Melanoma?
From the photograph it does not appear that it is dark enough to be suspicious, however it is always difficult to tell from a photograph. To be safe, your mole should be carefully evaluated. Please use the ABCDE's as your guide for when to be concerned about moles: A for Asymmetry; B for irregular Borders; C for black or uneven Colors; D for Diameter greater than a pencil eraser; and E for a growth that is Evolving or changing. If necessary, it is an extremely simple five minute procedure to remove this growth using a "shave" biopsy technique which typically leaves a minimal scar. The mole can then be checked microscopically for reassurance.
