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 m tn Hi there! I have been reading up on moles and skin cancer and I have myself a bit worried. I feel as if my moles are all asymmetric... I really don't know how to tell. Anyway, does that automatically mean cancerous skin cells or could it just be weird looking moles? They all seem to be the same size, not large or red or even painful, but Ive been worrying myself with online research. Should I just have a dematolgost check them out? Thanks!
Avatar n tn Now it is August and the moles are completely gone. The white circles are still there and now there is just a small red dot in the middle of the circle, Im assuming thats maybe the mole now. Should I be concerned?
Avatar n tn My husband has alot of red moles. I have been reading about them recently an am kind of scared that he'll get skin cancer or already has it. He has at least 5 if not more on his head, chest, and back. He's had them his whole life as far as he can remember. Should I be worried?
Avatar n tn My father has about 20 red moles on his back. They stick out a lot and are bright red, almost as if they are filled with blood. They are also round. But All the rest of his moles are normal brown. He says he doesn't know what they are, but I wanna know if anybody knows what they are. I also know he has skin damage because whenever he goes outside, even if it is midnight and it is raining, he puts on a ton of sunscreen. Enough to make his tan skin color face turn white.

Avatar f tn History of GIT problems (acidity), quit smoking 6 years ago (was a heavy smoker). Oily skin on face, dry skin on body. Question is about moles on skin. He has three moles, 2 on shoulder and 1 on lateral side of hip and a hard slight process (could be a mole but colorless) appeared on chest skin 5 months ago. The moles on shoulder and hip are as large as a fingernail and greenish. Doesn't remember if it was always this color but seems to remember them getting slightly bigger.

Avatar m tn I'm a red head, light skin, freckles and burn easily. I don't seem to have any symptoms of melanoma and they are of normal brown tan in color. I currently do not have health insuranceI just don't know if I should worry or If it could be just a simple as "just a mole" does the pharmacy carry anything over the counter to remove such cosmetic issue without having to pay out of pocket to see a Dermatologist? Thanks in advance for any replies.
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 n tn I am a 37yr. female. I have very fair skin, blue eyes, red hair. 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.
Avatar n tn It was not painful, red or inflamed. It was the size of my pinky fingertip and the same color of my flesh. After a few weeks of the bump not going away, I went to the doctor and he said it was nothing to be worried about. I now have three of the bumps on my upper arms, in various stages of evolution. The first one I noticed is flat, semi round, and unevenly brown. The second one is pinkish brown and still quite raised. A third is somewhere between the two.
Avatar n tn Hi - I have several questions I hoped u can help with: 1) I have several moles on my face. A couple of them are raised and have a diameter of aprox 1/4 inch. I am thinking of getting them removed but am very concerned about scarring. What kind of doctor should I see? (dermatology? dermapathology? plastic surgery?) 2) I have a "bump" on my leg (front of leg, above the ankle, where the ankle connect to the leg).
1642649 tn?1300836649 I have seen red bumps on skin caused from heat rash/excess sebaceous glands, where the pores of the skin turn blood red usually when it is warmer out, but best to have a doctor look at your particular situation and family history to determine a cause. Definitely update us with what you find out too.
Avatar n tn Hi, It is normal for new moles to appear during childhood and adolescence. Moles will grow as the child grows. There are several kinds of moles: common mole , congenital mole, atypical mole or spitz nevus. Spitz nevus is a pink, raised, dome-shaped lesion. It also can contain variable colors such as red, black, and brown. The mole may bleed an can have opening that oozes. I recommend that you have this evaluated further by your dermatologist.

Avatar f tn I have very fair skin and over time have developed many moles all over my body. I know that my skin is prone to this and I am very good about protecting my body from the sun. Earlier this week I noticed (what I believe to be) a cluster of moles developing on one of my hips. There are seven little red bumps that look very much like the beginnings of moles that I have developed in the past.
Avatar f tn I've looked up many things to do with moles and none of them look like his.. What could they be and are they bad in some way toward him?
Avatar n tn Within five weeks it had grown over a quarter of an inch wide, was black, blue, and red and protruded from my skin further than it was wide. It also bled a lot. I had it removed and the skin under it as well.. my derm did not think it had penatrated my skin much. He said he was going to send it off for a biopsy, but when my wife called back to get the result, the doctor's office had no results. A few months later I developed a testicular cyst that my uro said he would keep an eye on.
Avatar n tn A few weeks ago my boyfriend noticed a mole on my shoulder that he says looked totally different. I took a look at it and saw that it is dark brown, all of my other moles are brown. It also has one jagged edge. It almost looks like the things pacman eats. In the mole there are also black dots and it is raised. Is this questionable? I also have four other moles that are raised and oddly shaped. Could more than one mole be cancerous at the same time? None of the moles are incredibly large.
Avatar f tn Hello, These red spots can be due to freckles, moles or petechiael spots. Petechiae are pinpoint-sized red dots under the surface of the skin. They are common after skin trauma and viral infections. They should go away in a few days. But if they persist then please consult a physician and get other causes ruled out which include allergic reaction, autoimmune diseases, thrombocytopenia, ITP or leukemias.
Avatar m tn Pityriasis rosea is a common human skin disease which presents as numerous patches of pink or red oval rash. The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and sometimes by itching. No treatment is usually required. In most patients, the condition lasts only a matter of weeks or months (upto six months). I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
Avatar n tn Hi May13 Moles like all skin do have pores. Generally you should be aware for this 5 points: Assymetry (if your mole really has a weird unshaped form), Border (lots of lines, intead of only one connected border ), Color (Different colors in the same mole, specially white, red), Diameter (if your mole is too big) , Evolution (changing of state, size, color form).
Avatar n tn what are the little brown moles on the foot and ankles?
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 f tn This involves numbing the area around the mole and removing the top portion of it so it is flush with the surrounding skin. There is a chance that after this procedure the mole could re-grow. I would suggest you to get it evaluated from a dermatologist because a possibility of this being a melanoma has to be ruled out. Melanoma has an irregular border, is asymmetrical,uneven color and increasing in size.
