Customer Question
Good Afternoon, I am a 54...
Good Afternoon,
I am a 54 year old female with a mole on my back that has recently begun to itch, and began to bleed when I itched it. Is is not uniformly round, and it is kind of scaley on top. I would like to go to see a dermatologist however the earliest appointment I can get is 6 to 8 weeks out. In the mean time is there any way of getting an informed medical opinion about it?
Ps. I have a photo of it, that is on my I phone

I feel so much better today, and upon further investigation believe that there is a chance that the responses I got saved me from a serious, even life threatening situation. I am very grateful to the experts who answered me.

I thank-you so much! It really helped to have this information and confirmation. We will watch her carefully and get her in for the examination and US right away if things do not improve. God bless you as well!

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
