Ophthalmology & Optometry/i have a mole in side my left eye


i have a brown color spot in my left eye beside my eye ball(left side).i have it from my childhood may be from my birth. one thing bothering me that i notice it's slowly growing.

Mole or Nevus must be examined and documented by an
Eye doctor to see if there is a change in size, color, shape, elevation. Photo documentation and an ultrasound b scan is usually the procedures to
Monitor its size and form.  Melanoma is on the rise especially in sunny environments with no
Protection .  In most cases it is just a birthmark
Or mole and nothing to worry about but you will need to have it monitored by a professional.  Dr ken
