I have brown, raised moles that developed on both areolas. Could this be melanoma? (Photo)

At first I thought that I would see growths called Seborrheic Keratosis which are very common on the areola in women.  They do appear to be moles and they do appear to be benign.  I don't think that you should be anxious about them and the next time you see your PCP or dermatologist you can have them check the area.
