View Full Version : scab/mole on head

06-12-2015, 12:24 PM
I have a light brown irregular scab/mole on my scalp that won't go away. I am now convinced it is melanoma. I have thin hair and am a 46 year old Caucasian women. What else could it be? Looking for some reassurance while I wait to see the dermatologist.

How long has it been there? It's good that you see a doc. Even if it's melanoma, early stage survival with proper treatment is approaching 100%. Good luck to you.

There's no reason that it has to be a melanoma, Karen, but you should definitely have it looked at by a dermatologist. It could be a squamous cell carcinoma, too, that would be my guess. Best wishes, let us know what the doctor says....
