Today I noticed two moles on my back with large dark circles around them. I have attached the photos of one affected area only. I have always had these moles, but have never seen these dark circles until today. I have had biopsies of moles from my back before and they were not cancerous. However, in the past, my dermatologist and a plastic surgeon removed a pre-cancerous mole removed from my right calf and a suspicious mole from my right bicep. My mother had a melanoma removed. I am also recovering from a case of shingles on my face. Could my immune system have been weakened from fighting off whatever is going on with these moles? Please explain.
Definitely, this mole with the large circular area is suspicious. There is a high chance that this mole could be cancerous. I would suggest you to get a biopsy done as this is a doubtful mole. Any acute change in size, texture, margins and color of a mole is an alarming sign. And your mole is increasing in size with very weird shape. Get the biopsy done and send the sample for a checkup. Your family history and your own history show that you are a prone case of precancerous mole changes. So, yes, these moles are suspicious and need a proper checkup.
