Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I have two moles on my left leg. I am kind of not feeling well. I feel hot and have night sweats.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

1. Are they sudden in onset?

2. Any recent change in the color or increase in size?

3. Are they itchy and painful?

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

The bigger or raised one I have had for years. The smaller one is about a couple of months. Not itchy or painful at all.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Nothing to worry. Do not relate night sweat with skin lesions. They may be coincidental. You can go for skin biopsy for exact diagnosis. The possibilities are as follows:

1. A melanocytic nevus (mole) most likely- nothing to worry unless there is rapid growth or change in shape in a few months.

2. Dermatofibroma.

Patient's Query

Thank you doctor,

I will definitely go and get a skin biopsy. I was just worried that I have two moles and they are close to each other.

Hi,

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

Do not worry about that as there can be multiple in one place. Just only thing to worry as I said before is the sudden change in shape, color, or size is alarming or else they are considered to be benign normal melanocytic nevus (moles) which are harmless.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
