4 moles growing on the same spot
elty posted:
I just noticed there is a fairly ugly mole. It looks like it is a group of 3-4 moles grow together. It is about 3mm, a little raise, not symmetric (since a few actually grow together, they kind of form a square actually), black and clear border, so it only fit one of the ABCD.

The weird thing is mole seems to like that area. About 1mm from that group of mole there is another mole that is similar in size and color, but it is symmetric (since there is only 1). And then, in another direction a little bit farther away, there are 3 more moles, but all of them are much smaller (2 of them are barely a dot, the last one is probably 1mm) and lighter in color.

The scary thing is that is like 7-8 moles all grow within a 1cm radius, with 3-4 of them actually touching together and form a rather ugly looking big mole. I am going to see a doctor next week, what should I ask him?

Tell your doctor exactly what you posted here. Your doctor will ask you questions regarding; when you first noticed the moles, and if they have changed colors. I am sure he will have them tested. Please keep us updated.
