hello,
I'm new to these boards ( i found the site by accident about an hour ago).
I've posted on another site but haven't found it very helpful.

About 4 months ago i noticed that i had a couple of moles growing on my stomach and breast (they were pale pink in colour) around the same time i noticed a painful tingling sensation on my back in a couple of areas.

This has been worrying me for a while, but i don't want to waste my GP's time.

The two moles on my front have now increased in size and changed from pink to a dark brown, the areas that tingle on my back are the areas that have new moles developing.

I'm worried but again don't want to waste the gp's time.
has anyone got any advice or similair experiences?
I really would be very grateful.
Thanks in advance!

Edit: I'm sorry i realise i've posted in the wrong section (curse of the newbie)

  • Any mole that seems to be enlarging or changing in color should be evaluated by a dermatologist. Please go and see your doctor, so you can get a referral.

  • I agree with the previous post. You should see a dermatologist, and if he can't tell you right away what you have, he will do a skin biopsy and you should have some answers from that. Good luck!

I was curious if you went or not and how you were doing? I had some moles checked out and they were not cancerous so I used the itworkspaste on them. Ask your derm if you can try that.

  • OMG, you better get this checked immediatly never ever wait to see a doctor when something new appears on your body. Not to scare you but melanoma is a very serious skin cancer please see a dermatologist quick and keep us updated.
