I have a mole that used to be raised and dark but over 3 years has flattened, became pale and has split into 3 sections. Should I get this checked out?
Changing mole: Any time you have a mole that "changes" its time to have it evaluated and more than likely removed for analysis. Something in the mole is causing it to change and that may be a sign of skin cancer and rather than worry - have it checked and removed and analyzed - do NOT just have it destroyed. see http://www.cdc.gov/cancer/skin/basic_info/symptoms.htm good luck ...Read more
Raised mole for years with no change - suddenly over last 3 days turning white n a little itchy. Is there any way it's not cancer? So scared.
Probably not: Some moles will develop a halo around them and are called halo nevi or moles. This might be what you are getting. Many people have looked at this, and there does not seem to be an increased risk of cancer in these moles. However, any mole that has changed should be seen by a dermatologist. It is certainly worth your peace of mind and it might need to be biopsied. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
