Question: Pain/Numbness near moles
|alm677 - Wed May 16, 2007 10:27 am||
I am a 29 year old female. I recently had pain in the muscle around my shoulder blade. It was a burning, twisting,searing pain that hurt constantly. I took advil, but to no avail. Finally, I gradually disappeared. However, now I have numbness around that area. I also have 2 moles around that area and am worried about melanoma. I have a large amount of moles all over my body. The one mole on my back doesn't bother me, but the other one itches sometimes. I just thought it could be dry skin.

It's always a good idea to have moles checked out, especially if you are prone to them, they are large and/or they change in character. I would see a dermatologist and have him check all your body for anything suspicious. This is a case where early detection is critical.
