Question: I squeezed a mole on my leg really hard and now a week later it's sore and turned black. Will it probably fall off or should I have it surgically removed? There has been some small non-bloody discharge but sitting on it (its on inner thigh upper leg) does not hurt and it's not hot or appear to be infected.

Hello,

Thank you for sharing your problem with me. I had taken a look at the image that you had attached and to me it appears that it would fall off in a few days time.

As you do not have any signs of infection you can clean it daily; but don't try to pull it out.

Should you develop any swelling or oozing from the site, then you would have to consult a Surgeon.

Please revert to me if you have further doubts.
Regards

Hi, just discovered a couple bald patches on husband`s head and they have what looks like brown moles around the center of these bald patches. Patches about a small coin size . What could that be? (the skin is kind of dandruff-ish, dry, scally here and there. )
Many thanks,
Genny

I'm 16, about 3 years ago a brown mark appeared on the glans of my penis. It causes me no pain, is about the size of the tip of a "sharpie pen" and is flat. I think it's just a freckle but would like an opinion. I have a freckle/mole on my scrotum that I was bon with, but this is smaller. I am not circumsised, and am a virgin, i can seend pictures if necessary,

Thanks
