This answer was rated:

I had a large mole behind my right shoulder for many years. It has resently crusted over and has now leaving just pink skin. As a cancer survivor, Breast and Uterrine cancer in 8 and half years remission, should I be concerned about this? I am quite well and am 81 yrs old and having yearly checks from UCLH hospital in London.
JA: When did the mole first appear? Have you used any medication for this?
Customer: at least 5 or 6 years ago maybe be longer I am not sure and I am not on any medication.
JA: Got it. Have you seen a dermatologist about the mole?
Customer: No never.I have quite a few on my body and my oncologist has seen them and was never worried about them!
JA: Thank you so much for your time. Finally, is there anything else in your medical history you think the Dermatologist should know?
Customer: Just lymphoedema in my left leg from 2 lots of chemo otherwise pretty healthy.
