I am a 41 year old female and in the past year I developed 5 sudden moles
One on my left breast, one under left breast, one on left side another on left shoulder and one on lower right stomach region.
The early ones have now gotten bigger and are 3mm in diameter light brown but are not symettrical.
The one on my left side has grown to 8mm and is very black and protudes sligtly.
All are scaly to touch.
I am also getting pain in left breast and in left side as well as hot flushes.
Any ideas to the cause would be most gratefully received.
I am waiting to see a dermatologist.
I have familt history of cervical and breast cancer but not skin cancer but i have lived abroad for a while and am a sun lover.
A changing mole should definitely be checked out. These could be harmless senile warts (look them up) but black ones can be confused with melanoma so should be seen by an expert and possibly removed to be 100% sure.
Pain in the breast is unlikely to be related and is most likely hormonal or muscular. See if it relates to certain times of your cycle.
Hot flushes can be hormonal or viral or just too many covers or even stress.
Take care and good luck with your dermatologist appointment. let us know how it turns out.
