Hi doctor,

My mother is a 69-year-old hypertensive patient taking medications. She has a round mole around the eyebrow. There is no itching. I have attached the images, is this dangerous?



Welcome to

From the image attached (attachment removed to protect the patient's identity), mole appears harmless. Does she have signs like increase in size, changes in shape or color, itching, pain, bleeding and ulceration?

Thank you doctor for the reply,

I have attached another image for your reference.



Welcome back to

From the image attached (attachment removed to protect the patient's identity), the mole has a symmetrical border. Asymmetrical lesions are harmful. So do not worry. Are there any signs like an increase in size or color change? Consult a dermatologist to diagnose the mole using dermoscopy.
