In brief: Not sure

I'm really not sure how to answer your question.
If you have been diagnosed by a pathologist with "cancer moles" that could mean that you have skin cancer, but most doctors do not use a term like "cancer mole". Doctors usually use more specific terms like "squamous cell carcinoma", "basal cell carcinoma", "melanoma", etc. If you could tell me exactly what the pathologist said, i could explain.
