This is the scary part. I had a smallish sort of pinkish area on my arm. Really, it didn't look like much anything. It was slightly raised but really, it was only a shade or two different from my normal skin tone. But, at one point, it got a tiny head on it and peeled a tiny bit. Really, it was nothing. But, I've had several moles removed - all came back fine - but my Dr told me if I ever found anything new that I was to report it to him. So, I just casually mentioned it. He looked at it, said it was nothing but, to be safe, he biopsied it and it came back stage II melanoma.
When he called me this morning, he sounded stunned. He said clinically, it really didn't appear to be anything. If I hadn't pointed it out to him, he never would have given it a second glance.
