    Ashlee,

    You can’t really tell if a mole is melanoma unless it is biopsied. I would get this checked if it is freaking you out. Have you had body photography of your moles. That is the best way to see if a mole has changed and whether to get it checked. Take the other advice here to try to relax and live in the moment..hope you can relax over the holidays.
