Not baby or pregnancy related but... mole question, perhaps Dr Fluffy can assist?

I've noticed a mole on my boob changed a lot during pregnancy but wondered if this is just due to hormones and boob growth?

Also I have an in growing toe nail (not the issue) was giving it a poke and noticed 2 Brown spots on the nail.. have filed the surface of the nail and they are still there... I think they might be moles too but have it in my head about moles under nails being dangerous!? Has anyone else heard this?

Trying to get an appt to see a gp but getting an appointment seems impossible!

Thanks! :o)

hey you....i'm not Dr Fluffy as you know but my moles have changed during this pregnancy, I have also increased number of skin tags, dramatically....they were just on my neck and I used to put it down to friction with my nurses uniform but I have new ones under my armpits...luckily I can still shave with them there!

On a positive note, it must be nice to be able to reach your toes again :) XX

Hey you! Hope you are ok? I think moles will be fine, just one of those things that's drilled into you to keep an eye on! It's more the nail thing.. can't think where I heard/read it or even if I dreamed it! Lol

Seeing feet again is marvellous! Almost back to pre pregnancy bod... need to rind some motivation and get toned up! Xx

Almost certainly hormonal, but any changing mole should be checked out. Take a photo if it now, in case it changes further.

Nail discolouration is almost always fungal, or a spot of bleeding - but again, I would get them checked out in case they are ungual/sun ungual melanomas.

The easiest way to get an apt is to ring first thing and say you need an emergency appointment... X
