Brief Answer: photograph required Detailed Answer: Hello Yes it is possible to develop another mole in a previously existing mole. Please try to note the following. 1. Pain in the mole 2. Bleeding 3. Sudden increase in size of mole. If any of above is happening, be careful as these indicate cancer. I would like to see a photograph of the mole. This will help me in giving you a better guidance. There is an option to upload photograph on right side of query page. Please utilize that. Thank you
