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 m a 60 yr. old Caucasian female, olive-toned skin color. About 10-15 yrs. ago I started developing dark patches on my back...the skin is just as smooth as the rest of my skin but, over time, the patches have increased in size and multiplied (I now have 4-5). I feel numbness and tingling in these areas as well as itching (almost constantly). The largest patch (about 5-6 across and somewhat round in shape) has a small, perfectly round (about the size of a ball-pin head) brilliant white spot, which has been there for 5+ yrs. I asked my GP what they could be and, after examining, he concluded they were just change in pigmentation - I only had 2 then. It s the itching that is so bad, I ve tried lotions, creams (incl. medicated & cortisone) but nothing seems to help. When I ve shown them to my husband (when married) or mother, they said it appears as bruises, but to look closer the color is dark brown to black. I can t seem to find anything that matches my symptoms. What do you think?

my daughter has a birthmark running all the way from her forehead to upper lip - red in colour. Very light on the forehead - but very intense on the upper lip. I have been told it is a mild version of nevus flammeus. However if I get it treated through laser, is there a chance of it reappearing?

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.
