See dermatologist: We cannot diagnose without seeing the moles you're talking about. It's best for you to see a dermatologist in your own community so s/he can examine you and make recommendations. Best wishes to you.

Probably not cancer: If you have new, "strange" moles on your arm, you should see a physician to have them evaluated. Most moles are totally benign but some may need to be excised and evaluated by pathology to be sure they are not cancerous.
