Conditions with symptom: 'mole growth'
i had a normal mole on my arm and then one day i accidentally burnt it while getting something out of the oven. i had a scab over the mole for about a week and then when the scab came off i was left with my mole, but it had thinned out and spread into more moles next to the original mole. is it worth getting it checked out?
Yes. (Just to be on the safe side).
i am a little worried, i have a mole on my leg and it is 15mm. i have had this from birth i am now 19 and have started to see what look like spots in my mole. i went to go pop them and they were a red colour inside but they did not pop and they red has not reached the surface and has stayed there. Also i had another mole remover about 2 year ago as i coursed me a lot of irritation but now i have started to notice a new mole develop in the same place and i don't want to see my GP as i'm scared i will be wasting their time, please help! thank you

My mole was really itchy and so I decided to itch it not realising it was a mole and it ripped of the layer of the mole and was bleeding for about 8 hours should I be concerned?
you should go see your gp as i had this condition its not serious, it is like just itching a scab but go to the doctors about the bleeding.
Im 27 years old and i have had a mole in my belly button. The mole has not always been there, it grew when i was about 16. It hasnt changed since then. Now i have children i worry more about my own health more. Should i go and get this mole check out?

I have a mole on my bottom. It has been there since I was born but it has got bigger as I have grown. I didn't know if it was maybe a birth mark that just looks similar to a mole? Should I get this checked out by my doctor? Also I have a mole on my side just above my hip, it is all light brown bur has a darker patch too. Is this normal?
hi im 19. ive had period problems, acn and excess haiir growth all over my body and my doctor recently diagnosed me with pcos. my main problem is thehair growth because ive been on metformin but that has not helped...can you tell me what i could do to slow the hair growth?
Hi. I also suffer from excess hair on my jawline and upper lip. I went to see my doctor who prescribed me a cream called vaniqa. This significantly slows down hair growth, although will not remove it. I found that this worked on my upper lip, although not on my jawline. You wont see a difference until about 6-8 weeks. I think you should give it a go. Make an appointment with your doctor, as this costs a fortune if you buy it over the counter. Hope this helps
I have a raised mole under one of my breasts but it doesn't look normal, more like a wart sticking out with a mole on top. I've had it for years but it's always worried me in case it could form breast cancer. Should I get it checked by a GP or is this just a normal mole?
I think you should get it checked out. i got told by a doctor that if it is bigger than an edge of a pencil then you should get it checked out.
I would deffo say get it checked out, purely because of where it is! Better safe than sorry i always say.
I am 13 and i have mole under my left boob, i think it was there since i was at least 2 years old. I am going to the doctor today for another mole on my back. The mole under my boob is big and has a lot of volume, it doesnt look too dangerous but its gross. What should i do?
Hi i am a 17 year old girl. I have a small nipple-like growth on my abdomen. I originally thought it was a mole, but after closer perusal a friend pointed out it may in fact be a nipple. It is brown with a slight pinky colour in the middle. Help?
