Hi. This dark mole on my back has become sore when touched. Should I be alarmed? Thanks

Dear kelnat23

I would recommend that you see your GP about this mole over the next week or so. Whilst I do not want to alarm you as sometimes moles that have been traumatised can be sore, moles that are changing in colour or painful should be assessed.

Best wishes
