Melanoma (Page 2 of 2)

Customer's Comment: I have had this mole for most of my life. I am 20 years old. It is approximately 9.5 mm. It has recently gotten bigger, changed shape and has a bit of pink through the middle and irregular edges where it had spread.

Thank you for your help.

 

Melanoma

 

Analysis

The MoleSense software could not find any skin cancer images on the Web that had color variations similar to this mole.

However, the mole is atypical: it is asymmetric, the border is irregular, the color is uneven, and the size is larger than 6 mm. In addition, according to your comments the mole has recently changed size, shape and color. All of these *may* be symptoms of melanoma. The mole should be examined by a physician ASAP.

 


Customer's Comment: This mole has been on my leg for more than 1 year, maybe several years; itís a bit different than the other moles I have, especially the contour; I think it has been growing, but slowly.

 

Melanoma

 

Due to the presence of hair the MoleSense software cannot process the image. While the MoleSense software can remove hair from images, if the hair color is similar to that of the skin or the mole, the software cannot remove it.
 

Skin Cancer Pictures

However, by visually examining the mole image, the following melanoma images on the Web may have similar colors to this mole:

ABCD Analysis

By examining the ABCD features of the mole, it appears that the mole is atypical: the color is uneven and the mole is asymmetric.

 

Conclusion

Because the mole is atypical, and due to the color similarity of this mole to skin cancer images on the Web, the mole needs to be examined by a physician.

Please note that due to the low contrast between the border of the mole and the skin, the MoleSense software could not find the correct border of the mole. As a result, no analysis could be done by the software.

Skin Cancer Pictures

There may be similarity, in terms of color variations, between this mole and the following skin cancer image on the Web:

ABCD Analysis

By visually examining the ABCD features of the mole, it appears that the mole is atypical: the color is uneven and the border of the mole is ill-defined.

Conclusion

The mole should be examined by a physician.

 


Customer's Comment: I believe this mole has always been on my lower back. However, I noticed a month ago that it appears uglier and now stands out which brought it to my attention.

 

Melanoma

 

Analysis

The MoleSense software could not find any skin cancer images on the Web that had color variations similar to this mole.

However, the mole is atypical: it is highly asymmetric and it has multiple colors. In addition, according to your comments the mole has been going through some changes and it stands out from other moles. All of these *may* be symptoms of melanoma. The mole should be examined by a physician ASAP.

 

Customer's Comment After Analysis: I wanted to let you know that the picture of the mole I had previously sent you was in fact a melanoma, arising out of an existing mole. All went well with surgery, currently stage 1B.

 


Customer's Comment: 3-4 millimeters across. Mole is near the left armpit. I have had it for many years.

ABCD Analysis

By visually examining the ABCD features of the mole, it appears that the mole is atypical: the color is uneven and the mole is asymmetric.

Conclusion

The mole should be examined by a physician.

 


Customer's Comment:

- I have many Atypical moles (100s)
- This was an Atypical mole
- Over 12-24 months it has lost its colour on one side and starting going away
- No tenderness, bleeding etc
- You can see where the original mole was - pink area
- 5-7mm wide including the pink bit that's now gone

 

Melanoma

 

Analysis

A regressive area, similar to the one in this skin lesion, may be a symptom of both an atypical mole and melanoma. It should therefore be examined by a physician.
