hello I have never posted on this board before but I am feeling a little concerned about a mole on my back and don't know where else to ask.
It's not a large mole, but it's quite tender today. It has scabbed over before and even bled a little. It's a raised mole and is red and has itched like a zit before. The area around the mole is itchy but the mole itself is just sore.

Dh told me to get it checked last year but I never did but now i'm wishing I did. I am going to call a dermatologist tomorrow to see if I can get looked at right away and I am guessing they will want to biopsy it?
Does it hurt? Does the characteristics sound like possible melanoma? It's in a spot that never gets sun and I don't even spend time in the sun. I am very fair skinned and I have a lot of freckles. I sure hope it's nothing

Thank you HeatherW97 for my siggy

Wow, I almost could have written this post. I saw my doctor yesterday about a mole on my back that has appeared in the last two months. It is itchy, has bled, and is irregular in shape and raised. The doctor measured it at 1cm yesterday. She is working on getting me an appointment with a derm next month to have it removed. Basically, she said it would have to be removed and biopsied before they would know if it is cancer or not. I'm not sure what the steps are after that, because she said it would depend on what they find with the tests.

Anyway, I know that is no help for you, but I just wanted you to know that you aren't alone. If it is cancer, we can both beat it! Go see a doctor to have it checked out, though. HUGS!
