Color - Normal Mole
The ABCD's of Melanoma

Normal mole color should be the same throughout and not have shades of tan, brown, black, red, white or blue. Many benign lesions do not meet this criteria, but that determination is best left to your dermatologist. In this picture, you can see that the mole is consistently brown. It does have some reddish features, but they are consistent throughout the lesion.
