Melanoma (Page 1 of 2)

Customer's Comment: This started out as a round very dark (almost black) mole right next to my left hip bone just above pubic line. In 2005, my doctor thought it looked suspicious and decided to attempt to remove it. I was pregnant at the time so while it was healing it stretched. It came back as fine but I have had every MD that sees it tell me to get it checked ASAP. Obviously the first doctor did not get it all out. It has changed in the last 6 years. It has gotten bigger than when it first started to reappear after the first attempt at removing it.

Please look this over and let me know what you think.

Skin Cancer Pictures

According to the MoleSense software, the two melanoma images on the Web that are most similar to this mole in terms of color variations are:

http://www.dermis.net/bilder/CD063/550px/img0084.jpg

Analysis

The mole is atypical: it is asymmetric, the border is irregular, it has multiple colors, and the size is larger than 6 mm. In addition, according to your comments the mole is changing. All of these may be symptoms of melanoma. There is also visual similarity between the mole and two melanoma images on the Web. The mole should be examined by a physician ASAP.

 

Here are some facts about melanoma:

  • People with more than 100 moles have a greater risk of developing melanoma.
     
  • Those who have dysplastic nevi (atypical moles) face at least 7 times higher risk for developing melanoma.
     
  • Most melanomas are black or brown, but they can be in a variety of colors, including blue, white, and skin-color.
     
  • Early diagnosis and treatment are essential; after the cancer has spread to other sites in the body, the prognosis may not be favorable.

Maximum Length: 3.0 millimeters (data provided by customer)
Perimeter: 9.1 millimeters
Area: 4.8 sq. millimeters

 

Conclusion

By examining the ABCD features of the mole image, it appears that the mole is atypical. In addition, there is visual similarity between the mole and a melanoma image on the Web. The mole should be examined by a physician.

Customer's Comment: I took a photo of a mole on my leg. I think it has been there for years, but I don't know if it has grown recently. I am 22 years old.

length of the mole: 9mm
width: 4mm

It is positioned vertically on my right leg. Could you please check it for me with your MoleSense Program?

Thank you

Skin Cancer Pictures

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.

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

Conclusion

By examining the ABCD features of the mole image, it appears that the mole is atypical. In addition, there is visual similarity between the mole and a melanoma image on the Web. The mole should be examined by a physician.

Many thanks

Customer's Comment: Thank you for taking the time to review the enclosed image taken today of a new mole I discovered on my back approximately three weeks ago. I noticed it when I was showering because it has a raised surface that is not smooth. It is roughly 1cm in diameter. I am a male, 52 years of age with fair skin and freckles. I do recall sun burns on my back in my youth. My father had a skin cancer removed from the top of his head, but I am not sure what kind it was. I am a recent prostate cancer survivor, so this has made me nervous.

Thanks again

Customer's Comment: Thank you in advance for analyzing the attached pic. The mole is on my foot. I have had it for years but has become darker from a year(ish) ago. I am getting a little nervous as moles are popping up everywhere. I am age 44 but did the tanning beds for many years from age 18 to 38. As a child, I experienced over-exposure to the sun. I have experienced blisters and sun stroke from too much sun. I am blue eyed with light skin & hair and I live in Vermont.

The education just wasn't out there...

The mole is 4 mm by 4 mm near toes.

In any event, THANK YOU FOR YOUR SERVICE!!

 

Customer's Comment After Analysis: Thank you so much for your guidance! A dermatologist has advised a shave biopsy is necessary.
