Hi doctor,My relative, who is 55 years old, has a red color mole like thing in her forearm. She has been having this red color mole since so many years. Today only we noticed that there are small fresh red dots inside it. It looks new. What could it be? No other associated symptoms. We are worried if this might be something alarming. What should we do? Please explain in detail. She is hypothyroid and on medication for the past two years. She is also taking medication for more than 8 to 10 years for her cholesterol issue.
Welcome to icliniq.com.
If there is a change in color, size, margin and shape in a pre-existing mole, especially in this age, then it is always an alarming sign.
As you said it is changing its texture and color, then yes definitely. We should suspect about melanoma.
In your case it is very difficult to say either it is a just normal change in a mole or precancerous change.
