Have many moles, done breast implant surgery. Malignant melanoma?

Hello. My name is Andreea, I am 22 years old and I have more than 50 moles all over my body, especially my abdomen . Four of them are as big as the eraser on a pencil, one is squishy and quite elastic, another one is brown and has a bit of black too, and I am also concerned about a black mole on my back. I have recently been through a breast implant surgery and one of the doctors pointed out that I should see a doctor. All over the web I ve seen pictures of malignant melanomas and very few of the images are similar to what I have, but, nonetheless, some are similar. I know it s hard to say without a proper consult, but I just need to know if the chances of me having malignant melanoma are high and if I should see a dermatologist as soon as possible.

I can understand your concern for mole. The most important thing is that not all moles are dangerous. SO even if there is possibility of mole you should not be panicky about it. From your description it do not appear as malignant melanoma.
Just check for asymmetry, itching and pain in the mole.Even then it will better to see a dermatologist for best diagnosis.
