noticed this thing on my inner thigh. I have psoriasis and I know this is not a placque. It stands out. It's like a deep brown color. I never noticed it before but then again, I don't look at the inside of my thighs much so I don't know if it's been there for awhile. What does it look like? Melanoma? It's not symetrical and does have a raised mushy feel to a bit of it. It's about the size of maybe a pea. Hope you can make it out in the jungle :) 3 pics below.
