Do moles just appear by themselves? Is this normal?

why what is it?

avenanap Sat 13-Sep-08 21:41:30

It's just a mole. Wasn't there yesterday. Just a flat brown spot. Very odd.

WendyWeber Sat 13-Sep-08 21:41:52

Yes, and yes.

cornsilk Sat 13-Sep-08 21:42:25

what shade of brown? Do you think it could be a spot?

SoupDragon Sat 13-Sep-08 21:42:52

If you are at all concerned about it, see your GP.

avenanap Sat 13-Sep-08 21:44:26

Not a spot, it's flat and brown. I've never had one that's just appeared overnight. I didn't know they could do that. It's not a spot, it's completely flat and painless.

I don't want to see my GP blush. I've definetly never had sunburn where this mole is.

avenanap Sat 13-Sep-08 21:47:13

Defiently not a wart. ds has had a wart, looks nothing like it, it's titchy and flat, as in can't feel any difference between it and skin.

Ahh. smile I'll go on Monday. hmm

Thankyou. smile I always take care in the sun and have never let myself get burnt (only slightly on my shoulders twice). I have a mole on the inside of my leg (at the top!) they were going to remove ages ago but they never sent me an appointment. I do check them, I never knew one can just appear though.

You must have been petrified. sad Are you OK now?

smile. I'll need a bikini wax first grin. Tis a forest down there! I've got to go anyway. I need to make an appointment at the hospital to see the pelvic floor nurse so I shall kill 2 birds with one stone and get all the nasties sorted out together.

I'm so pleased you are alright. smile

avenanap Sat 13-Sep-08 22:02:06

Could just be a blood spot though, it's hard to tell. blush

OG I've done it again. I misread op as meaning the velvety little creatures underground. Was intrigued as I can't seem to get rid of mine which are quickly becoming a whole town of moles on my lawn.
Sorry not to be even remotely helpful !

avenanap Sat 13-Sep-08 22:17:56

PMSL! grin Did the health title not give it away? grin

Hello Avena smile

I found out something interesting about moles recently. They come and go over your life, but the process is incredibly slow say over fifty years, and new moles are generally more common before about 40.

Thanks smile. Do you want a dog for your facebook profile as a reward? grin
