Hello. I have noticed a small mole under my arm, which has been kind of sore. It feels kind of like a burning pain when touched, which is always if I have my arm down.
It has been there about 2 days now. The pain, that is.
It was a normal mole colour, until today. It is more red-coloured now. Yesterday there was a red patch around it but may have just been caused by me touching it.
I have an appointment, but for some reason they are busy until Monday the 6th. This is just a GP... usually it takes a day or two at the most to get in.
I am 20 and no one in my family has any unusual moles, etc.. so I don't know what to think of it.
I also have another mole that sometimes gets itchy and then eventually just 'peels' off. Then it grows back again.
Is this common in normal moles, or does it indicate that maybe there is a problem?
Also, can a doctor tell, just by looking, whether there is something wrong?
I don't want them to take a sample or anything.
