I have a pigmented spot located on the back of my thigh, should I be concerned?

Hello…I’m attaching an image of a small pigmented spot which I have, located on the back of my thigh, midway between the buttocks and knee. I noticed it when I was doing a self skin-check, although I believe I recall seeing it there quite a few years ago and looking the same as it currently does. It is light brown/ tan and slightly larger than one quarter of an inch. It is smooth. It is located in the middle of each image.

I do visit a dermatologist twice yearly for skin checks, and no concern was expressed over the spot. Do you have any idea what it could be and whether I should be concerned? Thank you!

If you can send a close up it would be better. But from the looks of it seems like lentigines also called liver spot or age spot. Nothing to worry about. Have it checked out by a dermatologist if it changes size or color or starts to grow bigger.

It is nothing but age related pigmentation also known as age spots, lentigo etc..

They are harmless and benign..

They are commonly present in fair skinned individuals or those who spend lot of time under sun..

They do not need treatment but if they are unsighty prescription creams can help in making them less noticeble..

Do not worry as you are fine..
