My 7 year old son has a freckle on the palm of his hand. Someone told me to have this checked out ASAP. Is there reason to be concerned?

Great question! If it is raised or has irregular margins, is very dark or has variable darkness in different areas, of course! If it has changed that you have noticed recently, absolutely! Otherwise, make sure your pediatrician or family practice doctor is aware. This is the type of service that my VISUAL telemedicine platform allows me to provide. Often a quick look can be reassuring , or I can refer to a local dermatologist in your area if I don’t like what I SEE.
