Hello guys
3 years ago I had a mole lightening. It lightened so much that it turned completely white. I didn't biopsy and didn't even care. I've read in the internet and read that it would probably be a benign regression. It wasn't suspicious before it lightened. First one half started to regress and then the other one. Should I be concerned about it or should I just stop thinking about it. It doesn't look suspicious now.

A friend had a white melanoma.  I'd get it checked by a dermatologist just to be safe.

My cancer derm's take on this is if the lesion wasn't suspicious before it regressed, we don't worry about it.  Regression happens.  I've had several that have just gone away or become lighter.  I'm comfortable with this approach.  You have to do what makes YOU comfortable.  If you have any questions, contact your doc!
