Just discovered hours ago that I have a mole that has grown in the late weeks and somewhat changed colour.
Going to call the doctor in hours to figure out what do.

Please pray for me as I am scared and sad. Having a hard time going to bed.

Lord, have mercy.

All else I can say is that I've had a color changing mole more than once.  It sounds like you've caught it early.  Insist on being seen ASAP.

God be with you! Mother of God, keep and protect your servant!

Maybe anoint it with holy oil or holy water.

Have had a lot of blessed water on it and will ask (if it is permissible) the priest for some holy oil.
Can one bring up these fears in confession? Or should I ask for a talk with him outside of the seal of confession?

 Fear for one's well being is nothing to confess, in my opinion.  Bring it up outside of confession.  And call your doc pronto.

Talk to your priest as soon as you can.  There is no reason to wait for confession.  If you need to confess anything after that, he will let you know.

Question a friend, perhaps he did not do it; but if he did anything so that he may do it no more.
A hasty quarrel kindles fire,
and urgent strife sheds blood.
If you blow on a spark, it will glow;
if you spit on it, it will be put out;
                           and both come out of your mouth

i had one removed a year ago. it had changed over quite a short time but turned out to be benign.
when i had it chopped off (the usual treatment), i didn't even need a single pain killer afterwards, it's the smallest, safest operation in the book; my family doctor did it with a tiny injection of local anaesthetic.
it was so pain free, i had to look to make sure she was actually doing it!

(sorry for being gross)

so see your doctor before the end of the month and your priest too, but having these (and worrying about them!) is surprisingly common.

Update: I had it confirmed today that it was just dead skin samples. In Norwegian it is called Molingus (I think it is spelled like this).
Glory to God in all things. It was like a lot of weight was removed from both shoulders. Now I can continue to enjoy Pascha.

God bless you all for your prayers and kind words. Much appreciated. Smiley

Absolutely, talk with your priest if you like. It need not be in confession, I don't think.
