|Has it always been with irregular shape?
Do you feel a burning sensation, too?
|A persistently itchy moles can be indeed warning sign of a melanoma (ordinary moles aren't usually itchy).
Also, knowing the fact that melanoma can develop from a mole located at the soles and toe fingers, and that this place has frequent frictions and trauma, you should ask for further examination or even excision.
It will be good this mole to be first checked with dermatoscope, an instrument that can help your dermatologist to distinguish benign from malignant lesion (it will help your doctor to decide if the mole needs to be exceeded or left). It is especially of aid in the diagnosis of malignant melanoma.
Melanoma changes don't take long time!
Waiting for your post!
|Is the burning commonly a sign of skin cancer? I have had a mole on my back for a long time but i recently began to feel the burning sensation, im worried|
|I have an appt on the 25th with my PCP, and hoping to get a referral to a dermatologist. I am anxious because I want to know what is causing the itching and treat/solve it. Its so aggravating that I am totally open to even having that mole and surrounding tissue removed. I was thinking the other day and for some silly reason I was just hoping it was like clogged ducts or something! Wishful thinking- but I really do hope that it turns out to be something that simple to treat!|
