Moles

Hi
About a year ago I discovered two moles on my right thigh. I ignored it. Then a couple of months ago I discovered a mole on my back. Yesterday I found out that I now have a mole partly in my rectum as well. Quite noticeable.(My husband noticed it when I got undressed. He actually thought I did not wipe my bum properly). These moles has not been there before. Since making there appearance they have not changed in colour or size.
Should I be worried and visit a doctor to have it checked out.
I am a bit concerned about there sudden appearance.

Dear Bubbles
If these moles started coming out suddenly, it may be a good idea to let your GP have a look and refer you to a dermatologist if needed.
There are certain changes that can signal an atypical mole. These are often referred to as the ABCDE changes:
A: Asymmetry (one side of the mole looks different from the other side)
B: Border irregularities
C: Color changes (a dark color or different colors)
D: Diameter (a diameter as large as a pencil eraser or larger)
E: Evolution. Any new or changing mole should be checked
