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?

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?

Hello, my sister has a birthmark on her hand and I just noticed a slightly raised black pigmentation on it today. Is this Melanoma from what you could tell from the picture? Thanks

About 12 years ago, I had a benign birthmark/mole removed from the back of my neck that was fairly large (about 2cm diameter) and it healed into a keloid scar; unfortunately, I am unaware of how long it has been there, but I have a solid light (almost cafe au lait) assymetrical spot growing on (but not past the location of) the keloid scar. I have no other symptoms that I m aware of. How unusual is this?

My daughter has what we have assumed was a birthmark since she was a baby. It is a slighty raised bumpy patch of skin ever so slightly darker than her normal skin tone. When she gets hot and sweaty it darkens and seems to raise becoming more obvious and being on her neck looks like almost like a love bite. She is now almost 9 and this has never bothered her. However in the last week I have noticed another patch just the same has now appeared on her back. It appeared itchy at first a week ago but now the itchyness has gone but this patch remains. If they are not bothering her should I take her to the doctor? Age 8 136cm about a month ago 4.5stones

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...
