Does this mole seem cancerous?

Hello,

I've recently noticed something strange about one of my moles. I've had it for as long as I can remember, but a few days ago I looked at it and thought that it used to be a little smaller. It's not itchy and it doesn't hurt or anything like that. To be very honest, I'm not completely sure whether it has really grown or I'm just being paranoid and imagining things.

I have no past history of skin conditions. The mole is near my wrist. I would go to a dermatologist now but my mother is travelling at the moment and there's no one else who's able to take me, so I'll have to wait until she returns (which won't be long, but I feel like if I keep fretting over this mole my mind will implode in on itself).

A photo of this mole:

Thanks!

Re: Does this mole seem cancerous?

Hello,

many, many people have moles that change over time and they are nothing but that--moles.

Unfortunately, only a doctor can check and be sure. It's hard to tell what something is just by looking at it. I'm sorry you have to wait until your Mom gets back.

I'd say, don't worry, but I know it's hard not to worry if your worried!

Hope it turns out OK.
