Question
hi, I am a 22 year old female with light skin, light hair and blue eyes and lots of moles. I am concerned about a mole on my left breast. from what I've read it could be a dysplastic nevus but I'm very worried it could be melanoma. I know I've had it for at least a few years but beyond that I'm not sure. never paid much attention to hear until lately. Melanoma doesn't run on either side of my family but on my dad's side lots of moles are a common thing. It has hair growing from it and doesn't bleed or scab. I have left breast pain but I think that's unrelated. I have a dermatologist appointment for august 18 but they can't get me in any sooner.
