Im 26, i have a lot of moles and im worried about skin cancer etc. My mum has been diagnosed with malignant melanoma which has spread. Me and my brothers all have a lot of moles. I know i will get them checked out but at my age, if a mole is found to be malignant or not right and is removed, what are the chances of things spreading? Someone told me before that moles before 30 are less likely to be dangerous. Im also told that malignant melanoma isn't hereditary.
I should say im mixed race, white and black. My mum is white. There is no history of skin cancer on my dads side. I have alot of moles that vary in size and ive gained new ones over the years.
I asked my GP to refer me to a dermatologist and they said only to do so if I notice a change in a mole. By rough texture do you mean coarse/hard?? is size an issue? i have few that are very big, none more than the diameter of a pencil eraser....just from experience, what are the chances at my age?
bumpy texture on the mole/cobbled on the mole? hard?? i dont have any that bleed. can i send a pic of one on my neck?
im going to upload a few shots of the same mole
fyi i have fungal skin rashes that im treating with antifungal cream and its working.
it is very soft and smooth, i will have them checked out though Dr, many thanks, XXXXX XXXXX again rate excellent, why cant doctors here be as good!?
