Re: dark mole suddenly turning red

Call back to the derms office and tell them what the problem is and ask to be seen by someone just to verify it isn't a problem. Sometimes a regular mole will just get irritated and bleed so put a bandaid over it for now. But tell them. That is what my hubby's derm said to do if any of his moles start to look strange as he's had one that turned out to be early melanoma and he had delayed getting in by saying....he didn't want to tell the receptionist why he needed to come in earlier. Seems everyone says the same thing....I didn't want to say why....they are used to people calling back and saying.....you know what..I should have told you why so here goes....and the say why. At least they can put you on the emergency list in case of a cancellation.

But you should have it checked even if they have a PA or nurse who can look at it and tell you if it needs to be seen and cared for ASAP or can wait a few months.

PS...took me 8 months to get in to see a PA....doc was a 10 month wait....why???????
