My doctor said my mole has mostly benign characteristics and he didn't seem too worried about it except that it popped up so quickly. He gave me the option of keeping an eye on it or sending a sample of it off for tests, and I chose the latter. May as well, it doesn't cost me a thing, and I'd rather be safe than sorry. In two weeks I'm going in for the biopsy. My mom informed me that her sister had skin cancer before I was even born, so I'm glad I went in to get it checked out. You just never know.
