Congrats on 5 cancer free years after breast cancer! You should not assume that this is related to a possible cancerous mole. My advice to you is to find a dermatologist who is proactive in removing any moles that are suspicious and have a biopsy performed of each mole. My dermatologist has removed several malignant melanomas over the past 4 years, even though they continue to recur. Just be proactive about it. Don't wait - get a second opinion soon.
