worried about a freckle - scared of skin cancer
« on: August 29, 2014, 06:20:31 AM »
hi i am a 14 year old boy and i have a freckle to my right of my belly button area which im sure i have had for as long as i can remember but now i have taken attention to it and i am worried because of it because it looks like it has a blurry border around the edge of it and i think that that is a symptom of melanoma i keep having threats about skin cancer in a few places i have also uploaded pictures i hope that they get approved quick

Your picture hasn't been approved yet but I'm sure that you do not have melanoma and have absolutely nothing to worry about at all. Not only does your young age put you at an extremely low risk for melanoma but also unless you notice a drastic change in size of your mole or a change in colour - or if develop pain in the area then you have nothing to worry about. Also a freckle and a mole are quite different in the grand scheme of things.

You're definitely okay, try to calm down  ::)
