I fear that I may have melanoma.

Hi everybody, my name's Christina. I'm 20 years old. For as long as I can remember, I've had this dark brown mole on my back. A couple months ago I noticed that it started to change colour (I don't know if it started to change colour before that, I don't routinely check). I noticed that it appears more pink and has a darker colour in the middle now. It's a little bigger than a pencil eraser. I'm really scared that I might have melanoma, and now it's all I can think about. I'm trying to book an appointment with my GP. Does anybody think this looks suspicious? I'm really sorry if I'm wasting anybody's time! 

Here are two pictures:

Hi Christina, probably best to have that checked out by a Dermatologist. Any mole that changes in size or color over time should be examined. I was just diagnosed with melanoma in 2 areas. Thank goodness found early. My moles did not look terribly suspicious. Make that appointment to ease your mind and hopefully this will b3 a benign lesion!
