I am a 24-year-old male. For the last six years, new black moles have been appearing in my palms. It is not creating issues like itching, pain, etc. I just want to know whether it a symptom of melanoma.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
I have noted your concern and I have viewed the images (attachment removed to prevent patient identity).
These are benign nevi - acquired melanocytic nevi (AMNs). They are not a sign of melanoma. AMNs may increase in number during the first three decades and it is a normal phenomenon.
Generally, people who have a higher sun exposure over the years have higher numbers of AMNs.
