Lots of new moles(1 Post)
I was hoping someone could tell me if this is normal, or even if someone here who is a doctor knows why this would happen.
Very recently, I think over the last couple of months even, I've noticed I have far more moles than I used to. They're the flat kind that look like a brown mark, rather than the type which stick up from the surface of the skin.
I used to have a few but I'd say there are at least 10 new ones which definitely can't have been there a year ago.
I don't go in the sun at all or do anything like that which might cause skin changes.
I really don't have a clue why this is happening, is it a normal part of ageing I didn't know about, or just one of those things that happens for no reason.
I'd be grateful if someone could let me know if they've experienced this and if so, if they have any idea why!
