It started getting larger a couple days ago. I just held an ice pack on it for a very long time and it did not go down or get smaller. The skin is a little red and soft. What kind of Dr should I go to get it checked? Thanks again, Mary
Hi, you should go see a dermatologist to be sure this is not an infection or cancer beginning. Squamous cell cancer is the type of skin cancer we worry about in scars. Though unlikely, and I don't mean to worry you, it is a possibility.
You might try some hydrocortisone cream three times a day while you wait to get in.
