So, it suddenly occurred to me that my moles are irritated, swollen, and look a lot like Basal Cell Carcinoma. I have multiple "scar-like" mole bump things that at times will get irritated/itchy and red, and it can be like an open sore that takes forever to heal, and even when it seems to it never really goes away. I have it on my arm, and on my shoulder with some irregular splotchy mole/freckle things. On my neck I have some shiny bead like mole things that have become unusually irritated.
How should I share pictures of this? Is there a better place for me to be posting this kind of thing?View Thread
