  1. Hi @vaniplaku, I’m glad you reached out. For your (and your dad’s) safety, we are unable to offer medical advice or diagnosis since we are not medical professionals. I would encourage you and your father to reach out to his doctor/ dermatologist so they can evaluate this spot. Anytime you notice a new, changing or worrisome spot it’s always best to have it checked as early detection is important. Please reach out if you have any further questions and if you’re comfortable, let us know how your dad is doing. We’ll be thinking of you. -Julie (team member)

    1. If you have any concerns I suggest getting him a dermatologist appointment as soon as you can.

      1. No it doesn’t have any concerns, just it shows up last 2 years. When he touch it it doesn’t feel nothing.

        1. Hi - ultimately, it is up to you and your father on whether or not to get this mole checked out. I will say, skin cancer can appear in many different forms and early signs may not always be painful. Sometimes it is better to be safe than sorry! I hope your father is in good health. Please keep us posted on how he's doing and if you decide to get this checked out! -Alexa ( moderator)

      2. today we were to a skin doctor for dermoscopy , and the doctor said the second image which i made with red circle, is a little doubtful, for others images he said they are diskeratosis( which are not a big problem). But he gave us some medication like cream and soap to use for washing. What so you think for the second image ?

        1. I’m glad your father was seen by the doctor and they were able to give some reassurance about most of the areas in concern. Would they like him to treat the red spot in your photo with the cream? Are you to follow up again with the doctor after using it? We know this can be a very anxious process. Please know our community is here for both of you. If you have any further questions don’t hesitate to reach out💕. Please keep us updated on how he is doing. Sending well wishes, Julie (team member)
