I have had a very small mark on my jaw for maybe two years now. It is only about a cm in size, is pale pink and slightly raised. It doesn't hurt and is mostly round in diameter. It is a little dry soemtimes. I am visiting a dermatologist next week as it suddenly occured to me that it may be something serious.
I am a very pale blonde living in a sunny climate. I have never tanned;I wouldn't get color anyhow. I don't really have freckles. I am in my mid thirties. I always protect myself from the sun even when I am indoors!! LOL
The mark has not realy changed since I first noticed it. It is barely noticible sometimes to even me but I want to make sure that it isn't anything abnormal.
I am panicking a little. Does it seem likely that is could be cancerous? A melanoma?
If so, what could this mean? I am also worried that if they remove it, there may be scarring on my face.
