Bloody stools: I am not a pediatrician BUT bleeding per rectum is NOT normal.
That skin tag or mole needs to be evaluated.
The range of what be the cause is vast.
From your post I can't say for sure if she needs to go to the Emergency Department right away BUT she needs to be seen and examined by a physician to decide on a plan of action. ...Read more

A mole has become red around the area & inflamed with a lump underneath the skin surface ?

Derm consult: Since South Africa has the 2nd highest incidence of skin cancer in the world, I would recommend having a dermatologist evaluate any mole that is evolving. It may be nothing, or it may be a precancerous or a malignant change. It's worth having a specialist evaluate it! One of my mentors in residency told me to be very suspicious of any moles that appear or change after age 40, so please see a Dr! ...Read more

I have a lightly colored, brown mole which swells up a bit and turns to red after i scratch it. Is this normal, it this a type of skin cancer?

Unlikely, but it can: Happen. Many benign lesions look like cancers but are not. The only way to know is to get it biopsied; a simple procedure that can be done in the office. See a dermatologist, find out, and put your mind at ease.

Good luck! ...Read more

Hi i am extremely worried , i have a red mole or lump on my scalp and its burning and itching for a few months now on my right side of head?

Worried: Get it checked. The red color could be indication for some type of hemangioma. I doubt that this is a cancer as it would usually not be red or itchy. Other thoughts would be psoriasis or some type of fungal infection. Either way after two months it is not going away. Get checked! ...Read more

can't get to see a doctor for 6 weeks

Why 6 weeks?: Was it a seborrheic keratosis? By the time you see a Dr in 6 weeks it will no longer be red or tender. When you go, let's hope the Dr can identify it precisely. If not, a biopsy will settle it. Not urgent. ...Read more
