Pale mole? Scalp bump?

Hi there..

I wonder if someone can offer some advice on a scalp bump that has been growing over the last 6 months... The bump is small and flesh coloured slightly shinny/pearly and growing slowly . At first I thought it was an ingrown hair of a skin tag bug now it is a very definate circle pink / fleshy and slightly pearly .. On touching I feel like there are some broken hairs around it !!!

Normally I wouldn't worry but my sister was diagnosed with cancer a week ago and I'm frightened that if this is something other than a mole it puts extra pressure only family at an already stressed time

Amy ideas what I should do about it?

Could be anything really, but not necessarily anything bad. Make an appointment with the Derm to put your mnd at ease.
