The fact that you have several moles or spots makes it much more unlikely that any of them amounts to anything other than moles or freckles from prior sunburns. Although I doubt that waiting till February is a problem, it would be good for your peace of mind if you could arrange to be seen sooner, if you can, either in the same office or elsewhere....
I doubt they are cancerous. My Dermatologis / Researcher told me that the average person has about 14 slightly atypical moles (looks wise)...he might want to take one off and biopsy it. But they seem harmless. Cancerous moles usually have red in it too.
Dr. Rockoff can comment more.
Thanks so much if you read this. Could you tell me if I should be concerned about the nickel size bruise under my big toe. I ve had it over a year and it has not grown out with the nail.

im not trying to scare you just trying to inform you .
i was just wondering if you have had your moles chacked yet?i hope every thing is well for you.
Thanks so much for your concern, and I am sorry to hear what your poor husband went through. I hope he is okay now. Last week when I was in to see my GP, I had him look at the moles. He said he thought they were okay, but encouraged me to see the dermatologist to make sure. I told him my appointment was in Feb. and he said that was okay. So, for now I feel a little relieved but not totally until I see the dermatologist.
I did not show the doc. my toenail or all the moles. Just a couple.
Thanks again for asking.
