Brief Answer:
Does not look like a melanoma

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for the query,

This lesion presented in highly inflammatory and DOES not look like the classical image of a melanoma. In case, it has been there for a very long time or you have a family history of melanoma, you could suspect. from its presentation, it really does not look like one. It is a very very rare possibility, with the cases that I have seen and what is reported in the literature that this should be a melanoma. The chances are slim.

However, i would suggest you consult a dermatologist.

Thanks and kind regards,

Bain LE, MD. feel free asking further questions if need be.
