A few months ago I noticed a new mole appear on my belly. It looked normal until a couple of weeks ago. It started to become raised and dried out looking, and then it came off.

The place where the mole was is now a very light brown dry spot. I have never had a mole do this before and I was wondering if this is something I should have checked out.javascript: save_changes(43661);

I would get it checked out just in case. Just to ease your mind. Go to a dermatologist and see what he/she has to say. If it's anything abnormal, you want to get it early. Don't ignore it.
