I had a flat mole for years, that began to change a year ago. My health has greatly declined in other areas so I did not pursue a dr visit for the mole. In the last 3 months, it had begun to elevate and itch deep under the tissue. It developed something like a pore in the center and a scab.
I finally went in to the dermatology office and he ordered a biopsy and mentioned mm vs nm to his nurse. Malignant melanoma vs nodular melanoma?
Anyway, this is the biopsy site now. I have 2 concerns:
1) It appears where the “pore” was has a root that remained when the rest was removed.
2) I can’t seem to find info on whether this is normal or a sign of malignancy.
I know we aren’t doctors, but if any of you have similar pictures or experiences, I would love to hear about them. Good or bad. I would just like to prepare my heart.
Can’t quite figure out how to add the photo from my phone. Will try to post in comments.
