Hey guys, I have a mole in my armpit that is concerning me. It is starting to itch and the skin around it is getting flaky. I showed it to my Primary Dr and he wants to biopsy it. I have had 10 displastic moles removed in the past 10 years since my chemo & radiation for Hodgkins Lymphoma. I have an apointment for the biopsy, in 2 months. Any advice?

The only advice I can say is just get it taken off.  Until you have a biopsy, all you can do is speculate.  Itching moles don't have to be melanoma, but itching is something to pay attention to.  Sounds like you are "aware" and that's great.  Let us know how things turn out!
