I have a red mole on my left breast from 2 3 years. But there is no pain. Is there a problem?

Have it checked!: If you are worried have it checked. See a board certified dermatologist and get it looked at. Most moles evolve (in color and size) and this can occur during puberty, pregnancy or other conditions where there is hormone changes. However, some people are at a higher risk (skin color, history of sunburns, family history of melanoma, dysplastic nevus syndrome). Go to website www. Skincancer. Org. ...Read more

Needs an exam: It is hard to answer your question without an examination. Your description is concerning. It is concerning when moles change - change in size, color, become irregularly shaped, itch, bleed. Most moles are relatively easy to remove and test. Please see your primary doctor or a surgeon to see if this needs to be removed and tested. ...Read more

Honest: This is not a case for HealthTap. You need a 1-1 evaluation by a neurologist and/or rheumatologist. The efforts of the available HealthTap MD's have been outstanding as far as they could go In fact, if you are near the Mayo or Lahey clinics, then you should go there for an inter-discipline evaluation. In absolutely no sense of criticism, you have been through what I call "too much:" and need important psychological support to help you work this thru. H. Robert Silverstein, MD, FACC ...Read more

I have a raised mole on my chest that I've had for a long time. I noticed that if I look closely it has a slight red ring. I'm 19. Should I be worried?

No: Check it about once a month. If it gets bigger, irregular, bleeds or ulcerated, see your doctor. It would be a good idea to take a picture of the lesion so that you can compare the picture rather relying on your memory of the appearance of the lesion.
For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form.
Practice safe sex.
Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

I am 19 years old and the other night I found a little black mole on my right breast. Should I be concerned?

Probably not: It's not uncommon to develop moles as we age. The important thing is to watch for "red flags" in the moles: in med school we call these the abcds. Assymetry, borders that are not well defined or irregular, color that is not uniform, diameter > 5mm. It doesn't hurt to take a close up picture of the mole alongside a tapemeasure so you can observe for changes in size or shape. And wear sunscreen! ...Read more

How do I remove a mole? I have a mole on my breast. It almost looks like a large freckle. I also have a mole on my bikini line.

How do I remove a mole? I have a mole on my breast. It almost looks like a large freckle. I also have a mole on my bikini line.

Others: Others here have described moles that need to be checked out for fear of cancer. The important thing to understand is that the only way to completely remove a true mole is to completely remove the entire thickness of skin encompassing the mole. This means there will be a permanent scar no matter how inconspicuous it may eventually turn out. Also, most moles are roughly round in shape leaving a round hole in the skin after removal that does not lend itself to a simple closure. If the circle is small, say 2-3 mm then a simple closure may work. Wounds larger than 3mm will not lay down flat with simply closing them using stitches. They need to be elongated into an ellipse to close properly. Many patients have trouble understanding why removing a 6mm mole will result in a scar 1.5 cm long. That is why it is important to try and decide if the mole is being removed for cosmetic reasons or medical reasons. Any mole can be biopsied with a 2mm skin punch to determine if there is medical reason to remove it with little to no visible scarring. Any person seeking cosmetic mole removal needs to weigh the appearance of the mole versus what the scar would look like if it healed well and if it healed not so well. ...Read more
