I've spent much of my life out of doors and in the sun. I'm now (at 55) seeing a dermatologist every 6 months for a full body review. Most of the stuff has been minor, but I've now got a 2" scar on my ribs where one of the moles was packed with pre-cancerous cells. They took out all the skin in the area. Oddly enough, that was in a spot that rarely saw daylight. If anyone saw it now, I'd have to make up a story about a knife fight in a bar...
Some of the scary stuff can look pretty plain, while a couple of scary looking moles are ones he says never turn into cancer. If there is any doubt, get it checked out.
