What is h mole pregnancy?
Molar pregnancy is an abnormal form of pregnancy, characterized by the presence of a hydatidiform mole (or hydatid mole, mola hytadidosa), an anomalous growth containing a nonviable embryo which implants and proliferates within the uterus. A hydatidiform mole is removed upon diagnosis because there is some risk that it may develop into choriocarcinoma, a form of cancer.

Reddish brown mole on your back middle part slightly raised with a slight jaggard edge the mole is round about 6mm it has always been like this what should you look out for?
If it has not changed for years, you are probably ok. If it was cancer, it would have changed since cancer likes to grow and develop. The best is to go to a doctor and have them check it. You can get your mole analyzed on the Internet, but it will not tell you if it's cancer. There is a company that uses a software called MoleSense for Internet mole analysis.

If you have a mole does it mean you have cancer?
No. I think that you can't have cancer that was made from a mole it disn't make sence that you can have cancer from a mole. Answer No. Many people have numerous moles and do not have cancer. If the mole is an unusual color, has hairs growing out of it, or is large and/or growing, you should see your Doctor. Answer Generally, no. Moles are usually of no medical consequence. However, sudden changes that occur in moles (such as bleeding, irritation, darkening, sudden growth or a change in shape) can be a sign of skin cancer, so monitoring for these changes is adviseable.
If you were already sunburned and your skin was exposed for about an hour without sunblock protection and now your burn has a small red patch but isn't itchy with blisters could it be cancerous?
Skin cancer generally takes many years to develop. Cancer does not suddenly appear in the middle of a burn; it does, however, develop because of sun exposure in the past. It sounds like you may have developed a worsening of the burn you already had. The serious type of skin cancer typically looks more like an irregularly shaped mole that is dark, not a "red patch." If you are concerned, though, you can certainly have your skin checked out. Hope this helps! Dr. B.
