I had a pink mole/ growth on my head and I smashed my head on a cabinet and the growth ripped off should I be worried?
Should be fine: I would not worry too much about a mole being traumatically removed. Perhaps it was serendipitous. Certainly be sure to seek evaluation depending upon how hard you hit your head to rule out other injuries. A topical antibiotic cream can help keep the area clean and moist while it heals. Whether or not the skin growth should be evaluated by a physician regardless of the injury is a different topic. ...Read more

You should go to a urologist for a comprehensive examination. ...Read more

Rise up!: Prayer works for some people, not so well for others. No way to get pimples to work on a schedule. And alcohol just irritates things. My choice for spot therapy is an otc benzoyl peroxide product applied to a pimple after a hot soak, 3 times a day. This usually make things go away more quickly, or at least makes them come to a head. ...Read more
