No thank you. Just give me the short answer so i can do more research if necessary
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
everything else is normal
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

The phone call offer wasn't from me and you don't have to accept it

If this were in a mole I might be concerned since it could be a sign of a developing melanoma

But if it's just as you say a wild long hair that isn't a sign of cancer or any skin or systemic medical condition

So I see nothing here for you to worry about

Please let me know if you need any more information

I would recognize a mole immediately. There was a seminar advertised and in the advertisement the md stated if you suddenly have a wild hair on your chin do not ignore it .I was wondering why will take this up with my family MD thank you
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

There was probably more to that than just referring to a single hair

But let me know how it goes

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.
