User avatar Hi, remember the ABCD of moles.A for assymetry,B or irregular border,C for different shades of color,D for diameter bigger than tip of pencil eraser that you should visit a doctor.Your case while does not satisfy these to get perturbed however might yet need a physician to look to just to say it is nothing to worry.Best wishes.
