Customer Question

I have a small mole on my leg (about 2mm across) and over the weekend it went darker, scabbed over and on Monday it fell off. It now just looks like a brown mole again. Is this normal?

This is normal if it was irritated or scraped.
If not, it should be looked at in person

by the looks of it, I would biopsy it if you came into my practice
