Belly button has large moles. Why are they yellow and white?

Hi I have had a large mole in my belly botton since birth. However within the past couple minths I ve gotten 2 new ones also in my belly botton (a little smaller) and i noticed one if the new ones has some yellowish white spots on it. Is this a concern for cancer? Also I m 12 weeks pregnant so that just makes me even more nervous. Thanks

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.
