What is a brown shaded spot on the heel of the food?
my mom has a brown shaded spot on the heel of her foot. I m thinking it s a sign of melanoma because the borders aren t defined and it has black spots mixed in with the brown shade. Then I see small spots down her back in a vertical line. I m wondering if it is in fact melanoma?
Hi, Thanks for writing to us. Your mother's brown spot on heel could be a simple naevi, mole,wart, trauma induced haematoma etc. The diagnosis can only be confirmed by seeing the lesion. I would suggest that you meet a doctor nearby. If the lesion looks suspicious it should be sent for biopsy. Hope this helped. Take care
