Brief Answer:

Fibroma

Detailed Answer:

Hello,

These are not moles. You have benign skin tumors called fibroma. It looks normal and does not lead to any cancer. However due to constant irritation you may decide to have it removed.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
