My husband has a large raised dark brown mole on his shoulders

Customer Question

My husband has a large raised dark brown mole on his shoulders which he has had for many years. It has not grown any bigger, does not weep or bleed, has a hard crust but beneath the crust it appears to have blood vessels. Not not but but unsightly.
He has now over time been coming up with small slightly raised wart like freckles around shoulders and couple on forehead. Looks like its spreading. He is 67 years old and in good health. Unfortunately he will not go to the doctors. Could this be cancerous or skin disorder please

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,
