  • Weird moles or something

    I have very weird moles on my forehead sicne past 4 years.. It was 1, then 2, now 5 are on fore-head and 4 in my head. really worried. they look really weird, spiky.

    And they grow, soft to touch, but hurt when pulled or scratched. If when torn or cut, they bleed like hell and keep bleeding for about 20-30mins, even when kept under water.

    What should I do to get rid of it?

  • I think you need to schedule an appointment with your doctor, preferably a dermatologist if you can. They should be able to tell either by the appearance of the moles, or through some tests if they need to be removed. OR if they aren't dangerous, but you don't like them, they will be able to help you with the removal.

    Do an internet search for the ABC's of moles. If you have one or more of the following, you should schedule an appt with your doctors immediately!

    Asymmetry
    Asymmetry can be assessed by comparing one half of the growth to the other half to determine if the halves are equal in size. Unequal or asymmetric moles are suspicious.

    Border
    If the mole's border is irregular, notched, scalloped, or indistinct, it is more likely to be cancerous (or precancerous) and is thus suspicious.

    Color
    Variation of color (e.g., more than one color or shade) within a mole is a suspicious finding. Different shades of browns, blues, reds, whites, and blacks are all concerning.

    Diameter
    Any mole that has a diameter larger than a pencil's eraser in size (> 6 mm) should be considered suspicious.

    Elevation
    If a mole is elevated, or raised from of the skin, it should be considered suspicious.
