    We are working on adding the feature of uploading pictures to this App. As of now you can upload the picture to our website Desimd.com and we will have a look at that and get back to you. Until then here are the features which might increase the risk for cancer: 1. Raised and irregular surface 2. Rapid growth in size lately 3. Color changes with simultaneous presence of multiple colors like purplish/brownish/blackish etc compared to earlier appearance 4. Ulceration of the surface 5. Raised and punched out borders Please look for any changes like these and let us know when you contact us back after uploading the image on the website. The only way to say for sure wether any mole is cancerous or not is a biopsy but a lot of these biopsies can be avoided if a doctor looks at the lesion and feels the lesion. Hope this helps.
