A member asked:

I have an irregularly shaped mole on my butt. its been there for over a year and hasnt changed. is it still worth getting removed?

That is your call to get removed. You may watch and wait. If the mole doubles in size, becomes more irregular in size, shape or color, bleeds, ulcerates or develops a nodule, see a doctor. Wish you good health!

Before being removed it will need to be examined. Depending on its characteristics and dynamics ( growing vs no change) your doc will make a recommendation. Many times observation suffices.
