Hello!
Two weeks ago I noticed that I had gotten a mole under my breast area, it was definitely darker than some of my other moles, and it's also tender, or sore, to the touch. Before I noticed this mole, I had done some research with melanoma; I noticed that some of the signs are there, though I really would hope that it isn't melanoma. I do not have any insurance, which is the reason why I didn't go straight away to the doctor, but I would like some assurance before I make the choice to actually go.

Here is a picture I took:
