As the retina detaches, change or loss in your side vision is the next symptom. You should see your eye doctor to check the retina. ...Read more

Mole removed(w/out biopsy) & w/in 2 weeks it grew back. Not perfect circle & dark center & gets lighter until blends w/ skin around.Should i b concerned?

Mole removed(w/out biopsy) & w/in 2 weeks it grew back. Not perfect circle & dark center & gets lighter until blends w/ skin around.Should i b concerned?

Mole removal: First of all, moles should always be biopsied when removed. Often moles will regrow if the original mole was deeper below the skin and a shave removal was done. I would have original dermatologist look at the area who removed it to make sure it is just pigment regrowth from an incompletely removed mole. ...Read more

3 weeks boy. White-blond hair. Pupils seem to be black, but has greyish ring in iris. Fluorescent light reflects off eyes. Has brown freckle. Albinism?

Oculocutaneous: Albinism is a group of 4 conditions, each caused by a specific gene mutation inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern. When both parents carry the gene mutation, each of their children has a 25% chance of having oca. See his pediatrician ; a pediatric ophthalmologist for diagnosis ; referral to a geneticist if he has it. Lack of melanin in the retina causes vision problems, so you need to know. ...Read more

3mmx2mm drk brown mole on breast appeared in pg (now 3mo pp) Flat,smooth,even color. It peeled in bath & black skin cameaway. Mole now a bit lighter but still flat&smooth&even. Could this be melanoma?

Possibly: It's really difficult to diagnose skin lesions without examining them. But you describe a black color to the mole, and a relatively quick development over a few months. Those are potential warning signs for skin cancer. A good physical examination, and very possibly a biopsy, would be prudent next steps. Please see your doctor and make those arrangements. ...Read more
