Answered by: Dr Sashini Seeni
Just two days ago I found a really dark mole(almost black) on my left thumb. Palm area. Is not big,and when I touch it, though I don’t feel the pain, but I do feel abit of discomfort(which I’m not sure if is consider painful, but I do feel my skin is more sensitive on the newly developed mole area). And I saw a slight tinge of redness circulating the mole area as well. My worries is that I saw online that the sudden appearance of mole might lead to skin cancer condition. I’m not sure if is concerning enough for me to visit a specialist atm due to the cases of covid is increasing. And what is the reason of the sudden mole appearing on my hand. Also if is ok if I could visit the specialist later after the cases go down.
