Raised small mole. No blood. A white spec on it. I had a bodycheck by SKIN DR on 3/31. Had Physical w Blood Work 2day. All normal. How fast does Melanoma spread? Meaning days or weeks? I can't see a doctor until next week. Is it too long to wait?
Not at all. If you have been seen by a skin doctor and he is not worried about the lesion don't worry.

If the skin DR found nothing just 2 months ago, forget it unless there are alarming changes such as ulceration, obvious color change, obvious change in size/ shape. Read more...
