Conditions with symptom: 'moles'
I'm 23 and in the past couple of months I've had moles appearing on my left cheek which I never had before I've even checked pictures of myself without make up on and sure enough no moles it's worrying and confusing me as to how I've suddenly got moles there in a horse shoe shape of 6 3 are small and 3 large and they are patterned one large then one small and so on should I be worried?
I have i'd say over a hundred moles, only a few a raised, maybe five or six. But doing the test here online says i might need to see the GP. i did have two moles removed about 4 years ago, and they didnt seem too worried about them. should i see a GP or maybe its not that serious?
Hi im 37 fair skinned had two moles removed a few years ago, nothing found, but now have many that seem to fit your profiles of naughty moles, should i go back to the doctors
A yearly check is always a must, its just like going to the dentist. I hope you have been to the Doctors by now with your ongoing concerns.. It is not something to play around with, these things have to been seen to early, regardless if you think they may be nothing or a waste of time..THEY ARE NOT.. Prevention is easier to cure and cure some times is to late..So hop in to the Doc office, now if you have not already seen to them..
i have over a hundred moles all over my body, have been developing numerous moles every year since I was little. Recently, they have started to raise and itch. Should I be seeing a doctor or concerned?
i have probably got as much moles as you,i dont like them but that is life i suppose.if you have an itchy mole then you should go to see the g.p. sooner rather than later,as if there is a problem then it can be removed if it is skin cancer,which is i think the best option to stop anything spreading,i am not saying it is skin cancer but best to get it checked out sooner rather than later.i have had 3 moles removed from my face about 8 or 9 mm in size,and one or two small ones removed at the doctors surgery with a burn freeze method,not painful.they where itchy the ones the g.p. bunt off,but not cancerous.you might just have an itchty mole which is of little concern.did have lasr treatment to pluck some hairs from the site of the scars,as i court the skin sometimes when shaving my face ,not expensive laser treatment.

I went to doctor who hardly looked and went no not moles but when i saw doctor for 1 on back he said was mole and i got picture with the moles their on my arm. I now got 1 on my back which seems like it will do same.
hi, i'm nearly 15 and have a couple of moles on my face and one near my belly button. I have recently noticed that one of the moles on my face has hair growing from it - kind of like 'whisker' hair and now that i've noticed it, i feel really self conscious of it and i want to pluck it but i've heard that plucking hairs from moles can cause cancer - is this true? or that it can be damaging to the mole and it can become infected? i am quite conscious of the hair but i don't want to do anything risky - please please does any body have any advice for me?? is it okay to pluck it?
In 27 and I have just recently had a large mole taken off my face. It was just above my top lip on the right. Everyone thought it looked cool, but I didn't. I have the brown spot there on my face since I was born, and over the years, it just got bigger and bigger. It had two hairs growing out of it and I was really self conscious about it too. I went to my doctor when I was 19, and he told me that it looked ok, and that the general rule of thumb was that if it had a hair growing out of it, that was unlikely to be cancerous. The hair grew longer, and i tried to pluck it out, but it was very very painful. This might sound abit funny, but I got a bikini line shaver(as it was a lot smaller than a normal one), and I just very lightly shaved it off down to the mole. I checked it every day, and once it got long enuf to shave off I did. I left the house knowing that no one could see the hair coz I shaved it off. I had the mole, finally, removed a week ago, and although it wasn't a pleasant experience, and it had a little scab on it and is abit sore still, it was worth it. I've noticed a difference already. It's away off getting tested somewhere and I've gotta wait up to five weeks for the result. My advice.....go see your doctor before you do anything. Ask him his advice about removal and about the hair etc. Try the shaving it off thing, then decide if you wanna have it taken off. Good luck.
