Do I have melanoma.. how likely is it that this is melanoma?

Do I definitely have melanoma? How likely is it that it’s melanoma?
I’ve read about the ABCDEs of melanoma and I think all of them apply to my case. My mole used to be just a tiny dot but then it suddenly became raised and grew larger in size. It also became asymmetric, and the borders are irregular. It’s now about 4-5 mm in diameter. It doesn’t itch, hurt, or bleed. I’m a 23 year old female and I have a family history of cancer on both sides. My aunt has breast cancer and my grandfather used to have stomach cancer before he passed away. I’m incredibly worried and I have to wait till next Thursday to get it examined. Please advise, thank you.

The change in size and shape of moles are alarming signs of melanoma ..
Early discovery better management.

Hi
Unfortunately yes there is a high chance that it is a melanoma , waiting 4 more days is not a reason to worry

Good Luck

I am glad you are aware of the ABCDE rule,

There is some of your points in favor to and some are against,

Let me tell you that you should be suspicious due to the changes, but it’ s only one mole changes, and of v small size
Are you sure that there is no other hidden moles elsewhere??

Anyways u ll never be sure about the criteria except after being totally fully examined and with undergoing punch or excisional biopsy…
