Is it normal for moles to show up on your body?

Over the years a mole would pop up every once in awhile.. But in the last 2 days about 15-20 moles have popped up. Mainly on my face neck ears. And a few on my back that I have noticed. I'm freaked out as to why this is happening.

Thanks for this Helena, And please be cautious not to use tattoo to cover you effected mole part. It is advised to be sure of the mole before you cover with a tattoo

Dear Anon,

Thanks for reaching out with your concern.

If you have had that many moles appear in two days time, you need to see a dermatologist right away.

Generally speaking, the vast majority of moles are not dangerous. Moles that are more likely to be cancer are those that look different than other existing moles or those that first appear after age 25. If you notice changes in a mole's color, height, size, or shape, you should have it evaluated.

Keep us updated.
