Hi,thanks for query.I think you are having mole on your chest.Normally moles do not cause any problem.If the increase in size and grow in number than you need to worry,otherwise no.bye.

i have the same problem
Dermatologist Dr. Bharat Chawda's  Response
Hi!,
Welcome To HealthcareMagic forum,

By your description it seems to be a mole.If it is raised above the skin level then it is called compound mole ,and if it is flat then it is called junctional mole.
Any mole by itself is not cancer,so please don't worry.But if the mole is increasing in size ,or if it is causing itching or is bleeding form the site,then it is a cause of worry .

regards,
Dr.chawda
