Cancer: Skin Message Board

Cancer: Skin Board Index

Okay, just to ease your thoughts a little. I discovered a small "mole" on my forearm when I turned 50. I went to a University of california, Davis tutorial on skin cancers. The mole looked exactly like the melanoma mole and lo and behold it turned out it was. But the most important thing was, the dermatologist immediately biopsied the tumor. I think the positive take away here is that your mom's dermatologist did not biopsy the growth immediately, but recommended a wait period of a few days. Some other factors, my growth did not hurt at all and I even picked it off to see if it was just some bizarre growth. I am not able to view the picture so I cannot say if it looked my mole or not. There are many melanoma sites that have pictures of what the moles look like. Good luck and hope all turns out well for you.
