Mole on scalp
Hi all, I'm hoping someone can give me some opinions.
Two weeks ago, I went to the dermatologist for a yearly skin check. She went through my hair and said there was nothing unusual there.
Fast forward to this past Wednesday. I was sitting at the computer feeling through my hair and I found a bump. It was not painful. I then began playing with it, thinking it was possibly a boil. I poked and prodded at it and it began to ooze. I had my husband look at it, and initially he thought it was a boil, since it was all inflamed and oozing (not bleeding). So I left it alone for two days and had him check it again. It was no longer red, but skin colored. It was perfectly round and about 7mm in diameter.
I was able to get into the dermatologist that day. She said it was a mole and did a shave biopsy. I will have to wait about 2 weeks to get my results.
Does this sound suspicious to you? Is there anyway to confuse a mole with some other growth? I think I would have noticed if I had a 7mm mole on my scalp and I would have thought that the previous dermatologist would have saw it during my skin check. I am so worried, its unreal.
Also, the "lesion" had hair growing out of it, the same length as the rest of the hair on my head (pretty long). Is this a good thing??
