Hello, I might have asked you a question before. Anyways about a couple months ago to a year, I noticed a freckle looking thing on my left side of my left foot, on the heel, not the sole. It is flat. I have a lot of moles but this o Ed different as it is NOT brown and raised and all of my other moles are, this one is tan. It looks like a freckle, but I don't have any other freckles. It is kind of faded and light in color so Its a little hard to see. Im scared it might be some kind of skin cancer. Does it look like skin cancer to you. I know it's hard for you to determan over the Internet, but you probably have a clue on weather it's cancer or not, you sure know a lot more about it then me. I am seeing a dermatologist soon, but this has me worried and I want some peace of mind lol. I'm a 15 year old male. Thanks a lot in advance!

Yes I do think you have. I do not think that this is a cancer but let the dermatologist check it to be on the safe side. Good luck!
