I found a crusty mole while showering. Not like a blood clot

Resolved Question:

I found a crusty mole while showering. Not like a blood clot or painful. It was easily picked away like a salt crust, but could not see the colour.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Hi there. Thank you for your question. I will be helping you out with your queries

Dr. Shahzad MD :

When did that happen?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

What is your main concern? Cancer (melanoma)?

Customer:

Just this week, but in the last few months have also found new skin protrusions. like raised pimples in the area of my neck shoulders & under my breasts. Guess they are just down to sweat glands. Both parents & 1 grandfather died of cancer, so yes that's a big concern.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I understand your anxiety but with what you are describing there is absolutely nothing to suggest cancer at all.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

I am very sorry to know that your parents died of cancer.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Are you with me?

Customer:

So why the developing crust?

Dr. Shahzad MD :

The crust most likely developed because it was most likely a small growth with some pus or secretions that crusted.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

So most likely it was a pimple with crust and nothing serious.

Customer:

Thank you, ***** ***** still keep an eye on things.

Dr. Shahzad MD :

Yes it's always good to keep an eye.

You are most welcome
Wish you all the best.
