Hi,

It could be melanosis or melanocytic nevi. It should be diagnosed after direct examination. If the lesion becomes enlarged in size or changes its color or texture it should be consulted by a dermatologist. Most of the time it is not worrisome but there are some premalignant lesions which should be differentiated from others. Need not worry much if it is asymptomatic.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Archana Rajesh Babu, OB & GYN Specialist
