    Hi @jansab,

    I see your profile picture, and I can see some possible different colors and boundaries. We aren’t medical professionals, so I can’t tell you whether this is something cancerous. Our advocates always say that if you’re asking whether something could be cancer, it’s worth checking out. This article includes some thoughts on monitoring: https://skincancer.net/life-with-skin-cancer/practicing-long-term-monitoring/. This one provides some images with keys about what to look for: https://skincancer.net/images/pre-surgery-moles/ and https://skincancer.net/images/.

    If you’re able to visit a dermatologist, it would probably help with peace of mind. Are you able to have an appointment with a local derm? – Nina, SkinCancer.net Team
