My 15 year-old daughter has had a mole on her arm since she was born, but over the past year, we have noticed that it has been growing and is multicolored. It has all of the ABCD's, and she has had indigestion, which she has never had before, for a week. She says she wakes up with an upset, cramped-up stomach. She is no longer eating breakfast at school. We checked the diameter of the mole, and it is a half an inch, twice the size of a pencil eraser. Should I get her tested???
