Overcoming Moles That Are Getting Bigger, Feel Itchy And Painful?
Doctor .. I have a living mole, as I remember growing up as a teenager until now I’m 31 years old. Being on the chest I didn’t really pay attention to its development and now it measures almost 1 cm in size. Shaped like a cauliflower. If scratched, it hurts. But never bleeding or wounds. I used to itch and hurt. I am afraid that my mole is malignant. If I see a doctor, what action will the doctor take? I am worried if my mole is dangerous. Thank you for the answer, doctor …
Hello, Thank you for the question.
Moles that increase in size should be more aware of and should be examined further by a doctor. Moles that are large, which have various warrants, that feel itchy, or bleed should be suspected of the possibility of melanoma, which is a malignant skin cancer. If the size of this mole is indeed enlarged, you should immediately consult a dermatologist. The doctor will ask about this complaint, examine the mole, and perform a biopsy on this mole. A biopsy is the act of taking tissue for examination in the laboratory. This biopsy can determine whether the mole is skin cancer or not. You should not delay consulting a doctor.
Hopefully this information is useful for you.
