I have a light colored mole and is small and flat and when I run my finger across it, it is scratchy.  It is located about 4 inches from my clevage on my left breast and about 5 or so inches from my nipple.  Actually, it's not anywhere near my nipple but it is in line with my nipple but further down towards my clevage area.  The shape of it is sorta round but it has irregular borders somewhat.  It almost feels blistered.   What's really strange is that I have two other small light colored moles, half the size of the one I'm talking about, that are about three inches apart and they lead to the scratchy mole, almost like in a half circle.

Any information you can give me would be great.  I am going for my annual mammogram in Oct. so I'll make sure to point this out.  It's strange.  I have been going for regular mammo (every six months) because they saw layering but this time they let me go for a whole year.  I sure hope nothing has developed in that year's time.

I'm not sure what you've got there, but it doesn't sound particularly typical of anything that I know about. What are you thinking? If you think inflammatory, you may want to ask about it over on that board, but it doesn't sound like how I've heard IBC described. In any event, why don't you start out with your PCP and maybe see a dermatologist too. It could just be a skin anomaly.
