i had 2 moles removed. one on my arm (next to bra strap) and one on my back which was itchy and bled.

after 2 years they have both grew back. the one on my arm was removed and had to be stitched up and same on my back.

how likley is it that they grow back? they have both grew back into an irregular shape and lumpy.

when i was at the docotors i asked and she didnt have a clue.

This is strange that this was posted on the 19th, because on the 20th, I had a mole removed from under my arm right under my bra strap, that I had already had removed the year before, and it had grown back lumpy. Im waiting on my biopsy results now. Strange coincedence.

When it was originally removed, was a biopsy done?

was originally removed 2 years ago. mmmm maybe 3 actually.

yes they sent it way for tests of cancer and came back fine. but it has grew back the past year or so.

More than likely it is fine, if the biopsy came back normal that is. But depending on the doctor, "fine" could mean atypical in various degrees. There is mildly atypical when some doctors will not even consider it a problem. And normally it isn't. Lately, they are leaving the option of having a larger excision of a mildly atypical biopsy to the patient. It simply means that it has the potential to one day develop into melanoma. It doesn't mean that it WILL - just that it has the potential to.
Anyway, get it checked again and biopsied again. Get a clear and precise answer of the diagnosis. If it is a normal mole, then there is nothing to worry about. If it is atypical in any degree, you have the right to have it excised to eliminate the chances of that particular mole ever changing into melanoma. Hope that helps you.

Just thought I would add in here that I got my biopsy results today and it was a benign mole!
