New skin moles

Common Questions and Answers about New skin moles


Avatar f tn I've read your hormones can make you get moles. Well I've noticed lots of new moles all over my body nothing to be concerned about No skin tags or anything just dark colored moles. Has anyone ever had this problem?
Avatar n tn But what you describe is a little unclear. Are these pre-existing moles? Or new skin lesions developing as the old ones heal? Well, you definitely should be able to find a doctor who understands your language. You need to get a clinical evaluation done because bleeding from the skin lesions cannot be neglected. Only a clinical evaluation will help with the diagnosis and further management. Goodluck.
Avatar f tn I've noticed 4 or 5 new moles since being pregnant and I'm 28 weeks
Avatar m tn What are the causes of moles? Are there any new treatment that can prevent them from occuring?? Maybe gene therapy or stem cell. Also does acne or bad diet causes moles??
308074 tn?1289690946 Changes in color distribution, especially the spread of color from the edge of a mole into the surrounding skin, also are an early sign of melanoma. D is for diameter. The mole or skin growth is larger than 6 mm. or about the size of a pencil eraser. Any growth of a mole should be of concern. Signs of melanoma in an existing mole include changes in: Elevation, such as thickening or raising of a previously flat mole. Surface, such as scaling, erosion, oozing, bleeding, or crusting.
Avatar f tn They're not asymmetrical so it's not melanoma but it seems like I get small moles just a shade or two darker than my skin... And they're not skin tags. They are tiny moles. Is this from the hormones or what??
Avatar n tn It sounds as though you can wait. It's normal to get new moles until you're 40 or 50. The moles you describe sound like normal moles to me. By all means show them to a dermatologist when you have your appointment. If you haven't checked photos on-line, look at MelanomaNet at Unless you think that your moles look like the pictures of melanoma--and I doubt you will--you should be fine to wait for your appointment.
Avatar f tn I am concerned as skin cancer does run in my family and I am the typical candidate - blond hair, fair skin, light colored eyes. Should I schedule an appointment with the dermatologist?
Avatar m tn Over the past few months i have notices several new moles maybe freckles since they are small in size and light in color apearing on my body. a few on my chest, and a few on my arms. i also have a new mole apearring close to a birth mark on my inner thigh. what could be making these appear ? and should i get them checked out ?
Avatar n tn But no biopsy or blood test was done either. Over the past few months I have been developing new moles that are very dark but not raised. They look like large ink dots with very thin red borders. They are only developing on my stomach, legs, and ankles. I am making an appointment with a new derm. I am 40 now so I am wondering why I am developing these new moles so fast. I have two people very close to me who are dealing with Stage 4 and Stage 3 cancer.
Avatar m tn and it is OK also to get new moles/spots so I don't need to worry. I was embarassed at the time to show female doctor some spots I got on my penis. They were present this year, but I do not remember when did they appear or how fast did they grow. Apart from those three, I see couple more beginning to form on the other side, now they are similar in size and looks to smallest one on the left.
Avatar f tn It's now been almost a week, and the irritation isn't as bad, but what I am concerned about are the areas where it was itchy - mainly my neck and collarbone - has developed small, raised moles that are brown in color, circular and the size of a pinhead. These are new moles, I have never had this much moles on my neck and collarbone before. It's almost as if I am getting new ones daily. Could these be due to some sort of allergen? I haven't changed my laundry detergent.
Avatar n tn Hello, I cannot confirm anything without examination but it can be folliculitis, boils, seborrheic keratosis or moles. It is a benign skin growth of keratinocytes. A skin biopsy will be helpful in confirming a diagnosis. I sincerely suggest you to consult a dermatologist and get it evaluated. Hope it helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing or if you have any additional queries. Kind regards.
Avatar m tn Hi, I was wondering if it is normal to wake up with several new moles around the body. I looked at them and they aren't raised or red, they look like other moles I have. 2 are on my right hand and 2 on my left arm that weren't there yesterday. Is this normal?
Avatar m tn so many that I don't know which were there before and which are new anymore. Also, many of the new moles are not symmetrical. All of them are flat and none are bigger than an eraser but some are close. 5 of the new moles are in places that are not exposed to the sun.
Avatar n tn I have asked numerous people and no one can recall having ever had new moles growing the way I have. I cannot recall the exact date, but it was probably four years ago when I noticed the first one. Thank you in advance for your response.
Avatar n tn Moles are flat or elevated, flesh coloured to dark-brown to black markings which can be located anywhere on skin surfaces of the body. The number of moles that develop in an individual is determined by both genetic factors and by sun exposure. It is important to know the ABCDE criteria for assessing cancer: A for assymetry, B for border, C for color, D for diameter and E for elevation. A new mole after the age of 25 should also be reviewed by your doctor.
Avatar f tn I am 23 years old and have had new freckles/moles in the last one to two years appear mostly on my arms and legs, but some also on my stomach. They basically look like freckles for the most part, but I would like to get my skin checked out because I use tanning beds. How do I find a good dermatologist in my area and what should I expect?
Avatar n tn I have had numerous bad sunburns as a child and teenager. There is skin cancer in my family as well. I have always had some moles, and never had them checked. Recently, I have noticed new moles on my back, and breast. I noticed the ones on my back because the same area is always itchy and when I looked I noticed three moles in close proximity. They all seem to have irregular borders and different color tones, mostly light brown with black growing down.
Avatar n tn I just noticed today that I have two new moles on the bottom of one of my toes. They are right next to each other. One is dark brown in color and looks like a perfect little circle. The other is a little larger, lighter in color and does not seem to be as perfectly round as the other. Any advice would be appreciated.
Avatar m tn Anyone?
Avatar m tn I have recently experienced a marked increase in the number of moles, freckles and other skin blemishes I have. Im in my late twenties and up until 25 I had probably only accumulated 20 or so moles in my entire life where as in the last couple of years alone I have probably developed double this number (40ish) more. I have not been exposed to any more sun than usual recently.
541196 tn?1293556536 He has a fatty cyst/tumor on his back, and this new lump feels nothing like that. It is very hard and doesn't move much, the skin seems to move over it, but it stays stationary. It is near several large moles. 1 is large, raised and round the other is dark, VERY large, only slightly raised and very irregular borders. I don't know if it could be at all related to the moles, but thought it could be helpful knowledge if needed.
Avatar n tn It may also appear suddenly as a new mole. Some people have certain abnormal-looking moles which are called dysplastic nevi. This is why it is recommended that you have any mole that changes in appearance be checked by your dermatologist for proper evaluation. It is also important to know the ABCDEs of melanoma: asymmetry, border, color, diameter and elevation. Any changes in these parameters warrants further evaluation. Take care and regards.
Avatar n tn They are a clump of cells with different pigment (colour) than the surrounding skin. The surface of moles varies from smooth to pebbly and may contain heavy dark hairs or no hair growth. The number and type of moles that a person has is largely determined by family history. Moles are generally medium to dark brown in colour though they range from skin coloured to black. The majority of moles are flat, relatively even in colour and regular in shape.
Avatar n tn Yes there is a possibility that new mole develop in the vicinity of an existing mole over a period of time. Whenever any new moles develop, or there is any change in the color or size or itching or bleeding in an existing mole, it may indicate some precancerous changes. However, many a times moles develop due to changes in skin pigmentation and do not have any clinical significance. Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer which can spread to several parts of the body.
1219972 tn?1266763788 In September, I noticed a small dark mole had popped up by it and checking my other moles, I found a new large mole on my right side as well. The original mole on the left side has a dark spot in it and the mole on my right side has a dark sized circle on the end of it as well. It almost looks like a new normal round mole grew in it. Two nights ago I woke up and the mole on my left side was bleeding and bumped up. It has been hurting kind of like a burn does and scabbed over since then.
Avatar n tn Recently some new freckles have appeared after using the tanning bed and stayed and some of my moles seem to have gone darker also. Im really worried about skin cancer but dont know how to approach my GP as I have so many moles and think he may think im over reacting if i go in without a particular mole that i am worried about.
