My mom has a very small dark brownish round spot, inside very top of ear lobe. How can I tell if it's cancerous or non-cancerous? Doesn't hurt her.
Look for any changes: Moles are often benign. But if they start changing in color or size, then they need to be removed (biopsy done) by your doctor. So you can watch for a few months unless you have noticed any recent changes in this mole on her year. How large is the size and is the color uniform and border round (look and learn about the abcd of melanoma). ...Read more

I have never had a head injury. What can white spots on my frontal lobe indicate on an mri? I was diagnosed with epilepsy but think this is wrong
White spots, eh?: Presumably you didn't just wander into an MRI facility and made an impulse purchase. A doctor ordered the MRI, & for a reason. The MRI isn't the patient, you are. The MD who ordered the MRI is ethically obligated to interpret the scan results & correlate them with YOU the whole patient; or, if (s)he can't, to find someone who can. Ask to see the actual images & review them with your doctor. ...Read more

If more develop, become painful or irritated, see your Doctor/Dermatologist. ...Read more

I also grew a spot right behind my ear! Is getting big and I can't press it cause its painful. Any solutions?
Hard to say: Your question is not clear- if it is a skin lesion, at your age it is not likely anything of concern. If it is below the skin, about 1cm or so in size, and tender, it is probably a (benign) lymph node, which pops up in response to infection, skin lesion or inflammation, etc. I would probably leave it alone- don't mash on it, etc. If it doesn't go away on its own within a week or 2, get it checked. ...Read more
