Moles influenced by TMS?

    I tried a search on this but didn't find much.

    Can getting moles be influenced by TMS at all? I have gotten moles since I was a kid, whenever I was out and didn't have on sunscreen (seemed within 15 minutes of direct/constant exposure). For a long time I made sure to always have some amount of SPF on. Within the last 4 months I have been getting them popping up all over, even though I am wearing sunscreen, even under my clothes. I went to a dermatologist (new one) for first time in 10 years. They weren't concerned, but I still am. Why are they all of a sudden popping up like crazy even though I wear SPF protection? Can TMS play a role here? If not, has anyone had any experience with this?

    I really doubt it. Most moles seem to be in the following categories:

    - Genetic
    - Sunlight
    - Hormonal changes (Aging)

    Normal moles certainly could be the focus of TMSing by the worry they cause!
