Bald spot on head with a mole in the middle.

Recently I have discovered a bald spot on my head about the size of a quarter, it's sensitive to the touch and there is a mole right in the center of it. I'm a little worried about the fact that it's tender and seemed to pop up out of nowhere.

Re: Bald spot on head with a mole in the middle.

Please have this checked out by your primary doctor...If he/she is at all questionable then see your Dermatologist...With having a son who had five areas of melanoma removed on this body, I look at the Sun as one of my health enemies....Actually all of us should...What happens today may not show its face for 10 to 20 years, but it may show.....This is what happened to our son....Skin Cancer was not a threat when they were young...The fact that he is blond and fair skinned made it worse...What scares me today is that the Sun is is so much more intense and doing more damage than when my children were young...My best advice is respect it....It's not worth the price you may pay...ILD....
