Stinging mole on back. Normal?

I have a mole on my back that stings. I saw the Dr this week and he took a look at it and said its fine don t worry about it. He said it looks perfectly normal. I have quite a few moles but none that ever stung. It doesn t sting all the time but daily and so I notice when it starts stinging. I want to believe him but this is so different than any other so I m not sure if I should push or just trust the Doctor.

Mole is a benign condition. But, you have mole on back which make you uneasy.
There may mild infection in mole which may produce irritation or the pressure on mole may cause stinging sensation. Or it may be psychological. In any case, if it is embarassing, consult dermatologist and have removal of mole. The mole may be excised under local anaesthesia. And it is simple OPD procedure. So,do not worry.

I hope you got my answer.
