Now I'm freaked out

I found a weird new mole on my body today, so remembering that moles can be a cancerous, I Google "weird mole" and now I'm kinda paranoid about it. These are the signs of (potentially) cancerous moles:

A – Asymmetry, a mole shouldn’t differ from one side to the other.
B – Border, the edges of the mole shouldn’t be blurred or jagged.
C – Colour, look out for any changes in colour or patchy shades.
D – Diameter, check to see if a mole increases in size or if it is larger than 6mm across.

My mole hits basically every one of these. Maybe not the colour one, it looks like some of my other moles, but, geez, the size of the thing is what scares me. It's more of an oval-ish shape, so one way across it's about 6mm and the other way it's 7mm. It's kind of difficult to accurately measure it because it's on the underside of my boob. So, yeah... this is wonderful.

I am setting up an appointment with my doctor ASAP. And I mean, I'm not saying it's definitely cancer, but it really does scare me.

HAH, I am not going to have an easy time falling asleep tonight.

One time, I thought I had skin cancer because a freckle on the side of my face became painful and raised, but it turned out there was just a pimple under it... So then it went away, and I was fine. Hopefully your mole will turn out to be something minor too! Good luck~

I'm glad yours turned out to be nothing serious. :)

And thanks for the good luck. Here's hoping!

I dunno, to me, this is hilarious. I guess I understand the fear if you just found it, but I have this weirdass mole on my ankle that I've always had. It kinda looks like a pizza because it's spotty.

And I haven't died yet!...

Anyways, good look boob-flashing your doctor :P
That's redick!

Oh I laugh at myself too. It's mostly paranoia because, yes, it's new, and it's night and everything's worse at night, and also I'm pretty sure I have OCD, or at the very least I have some of the symptoms, so that doesn't exactly help.

As far as boob-flashing, good thing I'm not so shy about that stuff anymore. ;)

I have a ton of moles similar to those things. Needless to say I've gone on fine ever since finding those weird moles years ago. "Don't sweat the small stuff".

I have a ton of moles on my body. When most people are in the sun, they get a nice sexy tan. I just burn and get moles. XD One of my friends told me that my moles are sexy... o.o

But anyway, I've heard of that ABCD thing too. I wouldn't worry too much about it, but it's good to check up with your doctor, just to be safe. Good luck! :)

Don't Worry too much :)

You should have it checked out by a doc of course.. but don't take anything too seriously if you're not even sure yourself of whether it's good or bad.. have the benefit of the doubt.. sometimes you just have to say to yourself... I ain't an expert.

Oooh, good luck!

My brother had one exactly like you described on the back of rgw knee, and they removed it just to be careful... hm. I hope it's nothing serious.

Thanks, guys! You are too sweet!

I've got an appointment with my doctor today so we shall see what he thinks. I'm afraid I'm going to show him my mole and he's going to think I'm an idiot, lol. But I'd rather be safe than sorry.
