Patient: I have a mole on my scalp that has recently become painful at times, and scabs over. Could this be skin cancer? I have a picture.
Doctor: Hello,Thank you for your medical query at AskTheDoctor.comI understand your concern.Benign moles normally do not change texture. When a mole starts changing texture, turns itchy, or increases in size, it should be examined immediately and if required a biopsy should be taken.So, please confirm with a dermatologist and proceed.Hope this was helpful,Regards
