Concerned re: mole on my ankle that appeared about 8 months ago. It is about pencil eraser size, but I googled and found "nodular melanoma", and one of the images looks like my mole... i I have derma appt in 6 wks, should I get looked at sooner?

4 doctors agree

In brief: Yes you should

If you can't get an appt with a dermatologist for whatever the reason, a podiatrist should be able to evaluate you just the same.
