I am new to this forum. I recently discovered a new mole on the bottom of my foot. Naturally this has me concerned since I know that is a place where melanoma likes to show up. I've had it for a couple of months now. It's very dark but doesn't seem to have irregular edges. I also have one between my toes on the same foot but I have had it for years with no change.
I am a high risk candidate so I'm pretty worried. My mother has melanoma and I have blond hair, blue eyes, way too many sunburns in my teens and twenties, including a second degree blistering burn...and I have an Irish heritage.
What I would like to know.....is a mole on the bottom of your foot ALWAYS melanoma? I've never heard or seen of one without it being melanoma. I have an appointment to get it checked on the 20th of this month but that is a very long 10 days from now.
All the best to everyone. I am humbled by the strength of all the warriors and their friends and famlies.
