I have a black mark on my clitoris

Patient: I have a black mark on my clitoris. It is the skin itself but is black.I had seen my vagina for the first time so closely so i donot know if it was there from the beginning.Is there anything to worry about it or is it just a birthmark kind of thing.Please help

 

 

Doctor: Hi.Thanks for your query.Black mark on the clitoris seen for the first time by you has to be seen by a Gynecologis t. The Melanoma has to be ruled out.If this is a birthmark, your mother would definitely know it. If your mother says no, this should be excised and sent for a histopathology examination.I hope this answer helps you.
