Should I Get My Mole Checked Out For Skin Cancer?

Postby Axton » Tue Oct 10, 2017 7:32 pm

I've had this mole on my back for years, which is why I'm not sure if I should get it checked out. However, it has most of the signs of skin cancer, at least from what I've read. It's not symmetrical, the edges are irregular, and the surface is raised and uneven. None of it is new, it's always been like that, but I'm a little spooked. Advice?

to be on the safeside its best you get a doctor to look at it. they understand peoples concern when a mole changes.

stuff you read will make you paranoid but in personal experience, if it turns black or goes lighter, bleeds or very itchy then get it checked.
moles often become raised and been advised this is normal but i would advise to get it seen since it is in an area you can not see easily.
