A few years ago, I noticed a raised hard bump on my upper arm. It was not painful, red or inflamed. It was the size of my pinky fingertip and the same color of my flesh. After a few weeks of the bump not going away, I went to the doctor and he said it was nothing to be worried about. I now have three of the bumps on my upper arms, in various stages of evolution. The first one I noticed is flat, semi round, and unevenly brown. The second one is pinkish brown and still quite raised. A third is somewhere between the two. Melanoma runs in my family; my maternal great-grandmother lived to be 86 and was still having moles removed until her death. I am fair-skinned, have blue eyes and of course was exposed to the sun quite a lot as a child. I am a 26 year old female. I have had numerous sunburns, including a bad one 2 years ago, due to a sunblock malfunction. I was burned so bad, I have freckles on my shoulders now, that I didn't have before. Should I seek a second opinion, or asked to be referred to a dermatologist? Or better yet, is this something I shouldn't even be worried about? I have asked numerous people and no one can recall having ever had new moles growing the way I have. I cannot recall the exact date, but it was probably four years ago when I noticed the first one. Thank you in advance for your response.
