Painful moles

Hi, the last few months i noticed that some of my moles became painful when touched. I have a lot more moles now than a year before. Do i need to check them and where?

Re: Painful moles

Dear Jenny135

We would recommend that any moles or lesions that are changing;
- become asymmetrical
- have irregular borders
- change in colour
- increase in size
- become itchy, painful or start to crust
should be reviewed by a GP or dermatologist.

Best wishes

Re: Painful moles

Thank u. Also I am pregnant at the moment so is there any chance that my moles are itchy or painful because of the pregnancy?

Re: Painful moles

Moles can change during pregnancy but we would always recommend having them assessed by a GP/Dernatologist.
