    Well, the position of a mole depends on everyone. It can vary from race to race. Most of mine are on my chest. They do have some relevancy with cancer, but very few of them do. Most moles are non-cancerous but some can be.

    I used to think they were harmless little animals that made a mess of your front lawn.

    After a spell in hospital I know a bit more. Most of the time they are simply benign growths on the skin and the majority of the population have them.

    What is important is to keep a watch on them and take careful note of any change in there appearance. Normally they are circular in shape any significant change is important. If you're in any doubt don't delay get your doctor to check it out.

    Skin cancers are rising in numbers. they can be successfully treated but an early diagnosis is important.

    If you have any suspicion at all get to your doctor,right now.
