I have this heart shaped mole above my left breast. People often stop me and think I have a crumb or a fly or something on me 🙁
I actually kind of like it and since I’ve always had it, it’s part of me. However, people comment on it all the time and it makes me uncomfortable.
PS – I’ve had it looked at by a doctor many times and it’s not of any medical concern.

At first my response was: what mole?
Do you mean the small marking on your chest? Do you mean for cosmetic reasons? If it bothers you, I would – but it likely only bothers you.

There are two people whose opinion I would factor in to this decision:
– your FI
– a dermatologist.

I wouldn’t remove it.
I have a mole on my cheek that people have confused for a pimple before..lol I like it though.
So long as your dermatologist says it’s healthy, I’d keep it. It’s unique!

How cute! It’s a heart shaped marking over your heart! I had an enormous (3 inches long) mole removed from my leg several years back, that (1) made me extremely self-conscious, and (2) put me at a higher risk for skin cancer.
Really, its your decision, but I think its unique and beautiful.

I personally would keep it! It’s very unique 🙂

If there is no medical concern for this, I say don’t remove it! I have a mole on the left side of my chin, and although you can definitely see it, I like it! It’s a part of ‘me’ and I wouldn’t want to remove it!

Thanks ladies. Someone literally grabbed my arm today as I walked away and then tried to swat at the “chocolate” on my chest. I just about died of embarassment. My old boss used to point it out alot too.. like every single time she’d see it, she’d be like “is that a mole!?” ugh..

This is something you need to talk to a dermatologist about. You want to know the consequences of removing vs not removing. I previously had a non threatening mole removed not because it bothered me, but because I didn’t want it to grow. Moles like to grow, for the most part, and whiel the mole I had didn’t bother me, I knew it would bother me with its bigger. Plus, when its bigger, it’s harder to remove and more likely to scar. You see people with huge moles all the time; you know it started out small.
My personal opinion is to keep the mole, but also keep an eye on it in case it gets bigger or changes shape. You might think differently if it’s no longer a heart.

@WonderBee: Thanks. I keep a close eye on it. I’ve had it as long as I can remember and it has never changed in shape, size, color etc..

I have had a mole removed (dermatologist reccommended it) and trust me it’s not a fun process. It hurts and you can still end up with some scarring.
I say keep your beautiful mole. You say yourself it’s who you are. To me it looks fine!
I have a large scar on one shoulder and people always ask about it. It used to make me uncomfortable but now i realize people are just curious.

I had a mole removed from the same spot on my chest when I was 16. I’m now 29, and the scar is still fairly obvious. I’d stick with the mole!
