pink raised mole on eyebrow

Has anyone had a pink raised mole on eyebrow that suddently became itchy and dry with white visible scale and hurt a little. I read something about peroxide helping to remove moles. I tried it and it did help the discomfort from the mole. The visible white scale seemed to disappear, but returned. So, I started putting vitamin E on it. That took away the white scale. But today I am agan aware of a dull ache on the eyebrow. My appointment isn't until November 7. While searching on the internet it seems as if it might be basil. But other sites state that if a mole is elevated and thick it could be melanoma. Any similar experiences out there?? Nancy

About one out of every ten people has at least one unusual (or atypical) mole that looks different from an ordinary mole . Check out these photos to compare your mole with possible problematic moles:

* Atypical moles may appear anywhere on the ski and vary in size and/or color.
* Lesions can be larger than a pencil eraser (6 mm) and may have variations in color within the lesion ranging from pink to reddish-brown to dark brown.
* Atypical moles may be darker brown in the center or in the edges (periphery).

I think that as long as you're seeking treatment soon, you should be OK. But if you want to find another dermatologist, you can look for one in your zip code here:

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
These features are suggestive of basal cell carcinoma. I would suggest you biopsy of the lesion.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
