    Post A raised, dark freckle. What do I do?

    I have a few dark, raised freckles on my face. I guess they could be considered moles though. I have had them since kindergarden and they started out as a light freckle and grew to be the size they are now. Is that dangerous? Should it be checked out? What are the ways of removal? Any answer would be appreciated.

    Well the thing they tell you to look for is if the mole has different colors and has irregular borders that are not symmetrical. I have a bazillion raised moles, some of which I thought looked suspicious. I went to the dermatologist and she said everything looked okay. I'd suggest doing this because then you feel better and can just go for maintenance check ups if you have more moles that change down the line.

    If your doctor thinks they might be cancerous, I think they can do a biopsy, and then if it is cancerous they slice it out.
