Hi purplewolf! I suggest calling your primary care doctor or a dermatologist ASAP! Brown spots can be "just" sun damage or they can be cancerous, as you may know. I live in Nevada, a high-risk cancer state, so I am very careful and use sunblock every day, whether I go out or not (windows are great intensifiers for the sun!)

In November 1998 I had a mole removed from my face. One morning when I was getting ready for work I noticed that the mole I'd had all my life had begun to grow, but only on one side! You can bet your bippy that I called my dermatologist at the stroke of 9 for an appointment ASAP! The mole was removed and all turned out to be fine, thank God! After moving to Nevada I had a bout with skin cancer, which my dermatologist and I believe resulted from ultra violet treatments I received for cystic acne when I was 18.

Do any of your moles have irregular borders, getting larger or look weepy? I'd say the safest thing to do is to call a dermatologist ASAP, just to be on the safe side! Good luck, and please let us know how it goes!!
