Pigment growing in benign scar site
Hi all. I had a .6mm removed 2 years ago which brought me to this forum. I see my dermatologist routinely ever since and about 6 months ago had a mole removed from my shoulder that came back benign. I now notice that there is pigment in the scar site, and o can only assume it is new and not left over because it is on the back of my shoulder so I do not see it each day. I of course am concerned. Any experience with pigment appearing after a removal?
Thank you for any information.
