    You may hold the cure for moles in your blood, in this case I suggest you take yourself to the nearest science lab so they may run some tests :thumbsup:

    Its good news, but as always prevention is better than cure. Remember the A B C D E for moles
    Changes to look out for:

    The ABCD rule

    If you notice any of the following signs, then see your doctor without delay.
    Asymmetry
    The two halves of your mole do not look the same.

    Border
    The edges of your mole are irregular, blurred or jagged.

    Colour
    The colour of your mole is uneven, with more than one shade.

    Diameter
    Your mole is wider than 6mm in diameter (the size of a pencil eraser).

    Note any changes, record moles with a camera and it will give you a better guide at spotting changes. If in any doubt whatsoever see your GP straight away. Removal is quick and relatively painless with minimal scarring.

    Was you hot overnight? temperature can affect colours, if the temperature is not a factor get it checked out mate, the sooner its dealt with the better, catch them quickly and you should be ok as they just excise the mole.

    Im talking from experience as I have had three removed, and quite a few family members have had moles removed too.

    Well I'm hot most nights to be fair (not meaning that in a dodgy way) but all the rest are the same colour, but this one has gone sort of purpley....with a darker centre...

    Already rung docs for appointment...just freaked me out..... think is i'm not a tanning sort of person...I hate the heat and i get heat rashes so I keep out of it, you kind of expect it more for sunbathers etc
