I have two small black spots (like mole) on my cheek and near my lip. It appeared suddenly last week. What should it be? Should I consult a dermatologist?

Black Spots on Face: Skin cancer is on the rise. There are three types of skin cancer: basil cell carcinoma, squamous cell carcinoma, and melanoma. Melanoma is the most serious type of skin cancer, but if you detect it early, treatment can be successful. The areas most likely to have spots are the scalp, lips, ears, neck, chest, arms, hands, legs and the face. Spots can appear suddenly or slowly over time.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without examining the lesion. What you described suggests a wart. You may wish to try over the counter treatment for a wart, if that does not help, it would be useful to see a doctor.

I had mole on me cheek and fell off but did beed should I worry?

Most likely not: It sounds like you had what is called a seborrheic keratosis. These are benign hereditary growths that may fall off if rubbed by accident and can bleed. However, this diagnosis cannot be made for sure just by the history. If the bleeding continues or if the area doesn't heal, then you should go see your dermatologist. ...Read more

I have a raised facial mole on my cheek. Can I get radiosurgery to get it removed?

Yes: Radiofrequency loops can be used to carefully shave away benign facial moles.

I have what seems to be a mole on my cheek. It's been there a while. I scratched & it started bleeding with a slight burn. Should I be scared?

Get a medical check: Any mole that bleeds needs to be examined by a physician. It may be something benign requiring removal or it can be a melanoma which is a dangerous type of skin cancer. Please go see a doctor and request that this mole be removed. A dermatologist may be the best specialist to handle it. If you do not know a dermatologist, go see your family doctor for initial assessment and advice. ...Read more

Why would a mole keep getting sore and infected? It healed but now it's sore again it is on my cheek

I've had a mole on my cheek as long as I can remember, but a few weeks ago it felt as tho a spot was directly under. It feels like a harder lump now.

Biopsy: A mole that is changing needs pathology examination of the biopsy. If the doctor thinks the mole is benign, he or she may excise part of the mole, all of the mole, or all of the mole plus some of the normal appearing tissue around it. If the mole appears cancerous, the doctor will usually remove the mole plus some surrounding tissue. Consider a plastic surgery consult. It is your face. ...Read more
