Hello,
Thank you for posting query.

Firstly, a mole is a hyperpigmented spot. That means there is presence of increased melanin, produced by melanocyte.

Basically, it is a benign condition which require no treatment. But, some signs are indicative of malignant change in these lesions. These signs are
1. Recent increase in size, shape.
2. Development of itching sensation.
3. Recent development of inflammation.
So, from the above discussion, it is clear that the signs you described are suspicious.

Only investigation that is needed to confirm it is excisional biopsy and histopathological examination of that biopsy material.

You should consult with a general surgeon for clinical examination, performing excisional biopsy and for further management.

Hope this information suffices. Let me know, if you have any more question.

Regards.

I am a renal transplant patient. Surgery done 6 months back. After transplatation I used to take immuno suppresents like Pangraf, Cellcept and Prednisolon. Immediate after surgery my S.Creatin levels were 1.4, 1.3, 1.2 then 1.5 etc..After one month of when I checked my Tac level it was very high ie, 14.4. Then Pangraf dosage reduced for next one month.But there was no significant reduction in Creatin and then checked Tac level it shows 14.1. At that time S.Creatin was 1.7.Then stopped Pangraf and started Certican .25. A sudden increase in S.creatin and it became 2.6. My Biopsy shows ATN+ and other readings were quite normal. My Potassium and RBS are quite normal. Then started Neoral 50mg and tried 25mg, but again S.creatin level gets increased and now it is 3.6. My Doppler test parameters are normal. What would be the remedy on this problem??How it is happened like this? My donor is my brother. I am 42 Years old.
