Have it biopsied.: Moles can be dangerous especially if their is a family or personal history of skin cancers like melanoma, history of sunburns over the years, moles with different colors within it, have an irregular border, or are itchy and/or have bled. Moles larger than 6mm also need to be evaluated. Please see your doctor and if any of the lesions need a biopsy then it can done. Better to replace a mole with a scar.
