Getting bad rashes, Mirena removed. Many new moles coming. Can Mirena cause possible melanoma?
Can the Mirena coil contribute to Melanoma? I had the mirena for 4 years after having the copper coil for 5 years previously. had the mirena removed due to getting really bad rashes and now under the supervision of a dematologist in UK but nothing has changed with my skin and he is at a loss. But i have had over 50 new moles and all the ones I have had previously have gained in size and changed colour. waiting for appt to see specialist about 5 of my moles but wondered if the Mirena could have caused possible melanoma?
No no mirena is a hormonal IUD and is remotely if any related to melanoma. So I don't think that mirena would have caused the moles and the changes in their colour. But would still advice you to take a dermatologists opinion. Take care.
