Cluster of moles, itchy, bruise, hips sore

I have a cluster of three moles on my thigh. I had them checked 3 months ago and the doctor stated they were fine. About 4 days ago they started to itch and yesterday morning a bruise formed, now this morning my hip is sore. I have an appointment for Monday morning but anxious to do something now. Am I being paranoid and should hold tight for 2 more days? Thank you.

Moles are small patches on the skin that form due to collections of cells called melanocytes, which produce the colour (pigment) in your skin.Moles can change in number and appearance. Some fade away over time, often without you realising. They also sometimes respond to hormonal changes, for example during:
pregnancy – when they may get slightly darker;teenage years – when they increase in number;older age – when they may disappear from 40 to 50 years of age onwards.Most moles are completely harmless. However, they may be unsightly and affect your confidence. Moles can also be a nuisance, for example if they regularly catch on your clothing or you cut them while shaving. These moles can be surgically treated, although it can be expensive. You will usually have to pay for cosmetic mole treatment and it is often carried out at a private clinic.Ask your GP for advice about where to get treatment.You can take analgesics (aceclofenac) and antihistaminics (levocetrizine) but remember this is only symtomatic treatment until you meet your doctor.Hope this helps.Take care.
