Right smack dab in the middle of the top of my head. Been there for a while (two months or so). Won't heal.

I'm going to call a dr on monday to be on the safe side.

Inflamed/irritated melanocytic nevus. I just had one shaved off a few days ago.

The procedure and biopsy (including pathology) were $200 cash at a dermatologist, if you're curious.

Not a derm....or a doc. EMT-P and Navy corpsman. I hung out with an Independent Duty Corpsman(kinda like a PA)who did derm.

Eval'ing lesions goes by ABCDE....

Asymmetry: one half doesn't match the other half.

Border irregularity: jagged, blurred.

Color: not uniform, multiple shades of tan, brown, black flecked with red blue.

Diameter: greater than 6mm

Evolution: all the above, ABCD have changed over time.

That said it looks pretty small. One quality my friend notes is that notable lesions look "angry." But you should get that looked at regardless. Top of the head and top of the ears are very common sites for moles that turn evil.

Not hiv but full blown aids. Sorry OP.
Link Posted: 12/16/2016 9:44:27 PM EST
I had something just like that when I was younger. Started as a scab and would bleed occasionally. Healed and looked tumorish. Went to the MD and he cut it out and sent for biopsy. Biopsy came back negative and the growth came back as well but has shrunk now.

That's where the Deer Tick bored into your head and is using that open port as it's asshole to dump its offal.

Is this the medical term for ingrown hair or undetected tick bite that scarred, got infected? But on the head? I had something similar in my pit few years ago that got infected had to get lopped off. Had a different name for it though. Was about $200 at my GP office. Edit to add - damn that shot hurt. Doc said going to feel some 'slight discomfort' - that means hurt like a mofo.

In true GD fashion - OP's a goner. That mark is sure sign of Bovine Trichomoniasis.

it really is the top of my head. but if you would like to pretend the growth is on something more veiny and throbbing, go right ahead. Why do you say I'm going bald? Can you tell by the pixels?

I got a number of skin growths on my head that the wife has been after me to have the doc look at. I always read that skin cancer was pretty easy to have lopped off so haven't been that concerned.

That's true up until the point where it invades your head-bone.

Then it gets more complicated.

dont listen to that. flat doesnt mean shit. judging by the size compared to your finger just make a dermatologist appt. not a regular doctor either. unless theyll hack it off and send it in ti a dermapathologist or whatever the correct term is vs a regular lab

I say this with all niceties- if you are not sure what you are looking at then you're being a dumbass.

One thing the Aussies know a lot about is skin cancer and they are very aggressive in treating skin lesions.
Melanoma can grow very quickly. It can become life-threatening in as little as six weeks and if untreated, it can spread to other parts of the body. It can appear on skin not normally exposed to the sun.
Link with pictures of different types of skin cancers

Studies also show that even five serious sunburns in your youth can increase your risk of melanomas by up to 80%.

I had a series of scabs that don't heal. My doc gave me an rx to get rid of them. She said "It's pre-skin cancer. The ointment gets rid of it."

eta These were all on top of my head.
