weird scab, melanoma?
« on: June 17, 2014, 03:14:32 PM »
So, I'm a 20 y/o female with a history of hypochondria.  One of my main fears right now is skin cancer so I have been making sure to do regular checks of all my moles to try to keep myself calm.  Well about a week ago, I noticed a flat, light red, round, pinhead sized mark that I figured was an acne scar (I have many) on my left breast had become a darker red.  Over the past week, it appears to have scabbed over but the scab is black and raised on one side, and red on the other, I've picked it off twice and it bled both times and then came back.  The black part is raised, the red part is not, I've never had anything like this before, help!  I'm seeing a doctor in a few days but would like to know if anybody has had anything similar to this

A black scab isn't anything to worry about, but I'd keep the dermatologist appointment anyway since it sounds like this is having a hard time healing.
