I scrathed a 3 mm, slightely raiesed mole off about 10 days ago. Now there is only a little scar. The mole disappeared and it cannot be seen under dermatoscope, either. (I went to a dermatologist to check). Before I scratced it off, it was a bit puffed/swollen. That is why I am worried, what if it was a melanoma, because change occured (swelling).
As this time the mole cannot be seen, how can I become safe that it was not melanoma.
If a doctor would excise the site, would it be helpful (to make a pathology report)?

Well, I have seen pictures.

This is only inflammatory lesion and is normal reaction. No need to get panic at all,

Such scar, can remain on the affected part for few weeks.

It is not melanoma or any other serious issue.

Please be relaxed.

Hope this helped

Thank you. I understand that scar is normal. But how can anyone know that the picked off mole was not a melanoma?
You did not see what I scratced off...

I understand your concern.

If this was melanoma, it would have bleed heavily after picking up and you would have again seen it at affected site. You may see ulcer at that site after picking up.

As it has already been 10 days, so i am sure, that was not melanoma.

Please be relaxed. You are safe.

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.
