Asking for online advice on melanoma with a picture is not the thing to do. I know you are very nervous and want reassurance. Only a good dermatologist can provide the right diagnosis. So, go see one asap. Melanoma doesn’t grow in two weeks. It steadily grows and changes over weeks and months. That’s what a Melanoma institute Australia’s oncologist told me last year.

I agree, only a biopsy can show what a lesion is. So please see a dermatologist and get their opinion. Try not to get ahead of it and I hope all goes well.
