Unhappy PAINFUL MOLE (CANCEROUS?)

Hi,
I've had a mole on my shoulder for as long as I can remember. A few months ago, I started getting a sharp pain shooting through the mole into my shoulder. I don't know if I should see a doctor about it, or if it's just nothing to worry about. I've heard that some moles are cancerous. Please help!

Exclamation

See a Dr. as soon as possible. It's probably not anything, but it's not worth the risk of waiting. I have had several moles removed that were precancerous, one of which itched and was sore. Thank goodness they were caught in time.

Did you ever have it checked out? I have one on my shoulder and I have been having pain around it. I am a little concerned.

Hi-
Any new signs, changes or pain in or around a mole should be checked out. It may be absolutely nothing, but if you are concerned, why suffer any further anxiety? See a dermatologist.
