Mole That is Changing Shape

01/29/2009

Question:

I have a mole. It has been growing in my hair line on my head. It itches and when I comb my hair it hurts. At first I was picking and pulling at it but it would`nt come off. In the last two weeks it has gotton longer. All I know is that it is driving me crazy. It`s kind of rough feeling. Should I get it looked at by a doctor? 

Answer:

You should definitely have the mole evaluated by a physician who is a dermatologist.
