funny looking black mole
Here’s another mole that you take one look at and think—UGH!!!!!
Its ugly, but so was Neil Shroff’s case I posted a few days ago, and that was a harmless seborrhoiec keratosis. Need to get the dermoscope into action.
Absolute chaos. Even to a complete beginner, you can see multiple colours, multiple structures, even if you can’t name them.
I can see, from the top of the lesion going clockwise, streaks, an eccentric black blotch, irregular network, asymmetric clods, shiny white streaks, and a blue grey veil. That’s 6 out of 7 of Giuseppe Argenziano’s well validated 7 point check list (the only missing feature being atypical vessels, and there are probably some atypical vessels under all that black.)
Melanoma all the way.
