Brief Answer: Melanocytic naevi or moles Detailed Answer: Hi again, The lesions that you have over your leg are simply melanocytic naevi or moles. These are essentially benign and harmless less. The only reason for concern is when there is a sudden increase in size of these lesions or there is sudden change in shape or colour. Even if there is any altered sensation in the form of itching or bleeding in these lesions, then we need to be cautious to rule out other things. If there are on such symptoms, then we can leave the lesions on their own unless they are harming up cosmetically. Hope it helps If you have any other query, please ask Dr Geetika Paul

Brief Answer: Naevi with pigment Detailed Answer: Yes, these naevi are all essentially harmless lesions unless they undergo any of the changes as told. And their malignant change is very rare. The only thing that we need to do is to be cautious and get a check up done if there is any doubt. So be calm and rest assured that there is nothing to be worried about. Dr Geetika Paul
