Re: Mole removed 1 year ago is itchy
Moles can grow back but, when I had mine removed, my doc told me to come back if the mole started growing back. Not a good sign I guess.
As far as the itch, did the area properly heal or is it still healing? Usually, and itchy wound is a healing wound. If it is still healing, that may be why it is itching but, it should be healed by now. I would go see my derm if I were you. I think I remember hearing people talk about old scars itching. And, when I was little, I had open heart surgery and have a rather large scar from it (I was 5 which means it was 29 years ago and I was tiny so, they really basically tore my chest open resulting in a huge scar). Anyway, I remember people would ask me if my scar hurt or itched while it was healing and even for several year afterwards. It never did itch but, perhaps that is a common issue with scars.
Anyway, do go see your doc so he or she can make sure that the mole is ok and that the scar is healed or healing fine.
You should get into the habit of visiting with your derm once a year anyway for regular screenings.
Take care and keep in touch!
