I found a small lump on the back of my sons head when he was very young, like a few months old. His dad and I looked at it and checked both side and our own heads and noticed we all have small lumps in this area. So even though his seemed like his was possibly slightly bigger on one side, his dad convinced me it was no big deal. He is now 1 1/2 yrs old and I have found a much larger lump in the sane are, I am quite positive it is the same thing I found when he was much smaller, only much bigger in size. What could it be? And, what should I do?

In the past year I have developed a red birthmark on my inner thigh. It looks like a rash, but it is not raised or itchy and is about the size of a silver dollar . I am 33, a healthy weight, fair skinned and I think it developed shortly after my 2 year old was born.

I m a 25 years old, 6ft tall male weighing 160lbs. Within the last 5 days, I ve noticed about 15 brown spots on my skin. 2 of them are birthmarks which used to be very small but they have grown in size along with the new brown spots. They are on my face and arms, although the 2 birthmarks are on my torso and shoulder which usually get no sun exposure. Are these sun spots and are there any malignant potential? Thanks.

I have a strange discolouration on my scrotum and wondering what it is. The affected area is a around 2cm of diameter and is very white in colour, almost like a complete lack of pigmentation. It looks almost like a birthmark as the colour is so different however here is the strange thing, I am 35 and I have never had this mark up until 1 year ago so it is relatively new. There is no itchiness, swelling, redness, or cracking. The skin is otherwise normal. Any idea?

I have a birthmark under my right breast, and lately (the past three months) I have been getting a red, painful rash under only that breast. It comes and goes, and smells strange due to bacteria of some sort I'm sure. What do I Do? My birthmark...
