User :   I have a new, weird-shaped mole-like bump on my back. It s brown and I don t remember seeing it before now. I am concerned because it s not symmetrical like I was told they re supposed to be. If it helps, I am 15 years old and I did get a sunburn a few weeks ago (sunburn s gone now though). Thank you!
Doctor :   Hi,
User :   Hello :)
User :   It doesn't help that I just watched a video about melanoma and now I'm worried :P
Doctor :   May i know approximate size of the lesion ?
User :   Um it's probably about the size of the letter 'H' on a keyboard or smaller..heh.
User :   Sorry, I can't measure it :/
Doctor :   Ok, do you have any associated symptoms like pin , itching or redness surrounding it ?
User :   No.
Doctor :   Is it possible for you to mil me a image of the lesion ?
