Customer Question

I'm trying to find out about some dark spots that has come up on my mother's scalp
JA: Some people call these cosmetic matters as if they don't matter at all. I believe how you look matters a lot and that our Expert will help you sort out whatever you are worried about. Please give me a bit more information, so the Dermatologist can help you best.
Customer: they are not raised or scabbed. She does say they itch
JA: Is there anything else the Dermatologist should be aware of?
Customer: She is on xarelto, hx of strokes, afib, and just found out she has probable thyroid cancer according to a thyroid ultrasound. Has elected not to do a fine needle biopsy d/t risks of stopping blood thinners. She is 78 yrs old
JA: OK. Got it. I'm sending you to a secure page on JustAnswer so you can place the $5 fully-refundable deposit now. While you're filling out that form, I'll tell the Dermatologist about your situation and then connect you two.
