Weird mole on my stomach

I have had the smaller mole for many years. This other, larger one has gotten bigger over time. Now it is very itch, and sometimes can peel it off. I have had a doctor look at it a few years ago and he said it looked ok. The itchiness is sometimes more than I can handle.


Does this look like something I should have checked out right away? I do not have insurance due to losing it to Obamacare.

Hi and thank you for posting,

Here is some information that I found about moles and when you should have them checked . Even though you have had this mole checked in the past, I suggest you make an appointment to have this mole examined by your doctor or dermatologist. You might want to call or visit a free clinic in your area if cost is a big concern. Itching is one of the symptoms that it is suggested you visit a doctor for.

Best wishes,
Atti
