    Obviously I will book an appointment with my GP but it will take ages so I'm also enquiring here to ease my mind or otherwise terrify me.

    I have had a mole on what I can only describe as kind of my leg but kind of also the vulva as well since I was born (basically to the left of the actual vagina) and I've just noticed that it's kind of a weird shape. It's raised quite a lot but one half is raised more than the other and it's probably about 6.5/7mm long and a tiny tiny bit is a different colour from the rest. I don't know if that's weird because it's not as if I stare at the thing every day since it's in such a weird place.

    Is that abnormal cos I'm kind of worried since I didn't know if it looked any different until now. I have little mole freckle things all over my body even in places that don't see the sun and my grandma died of skin cancer or a melanoma if those are the same thing! I'm only 18 btw? Will they remove it and test it or what?

    It could just be a skin tag as opposed to a mole.

    They will examine it and test it if it's causing them concern. If it needs removing, they will do.

    No need to worry, especially if you've never seen it before, you have nothing to compare it to.
