I've got a spot that is very suspicious to me and I'm wondering if waiting two weeks for my appointment is too long? Should I try another doctor or just wait? I haven't seen my dermatologist since 2019, as like many others, I didn't go into the doctor's office in 2020. I have a routine appointment in two weeks, originally scheduled for a full body check. I've called to move it up but no availability.
This is an almost flat, very dark mole. Not large. I have very dry skin so I've often noticed when the skin looks dry on this mole, but my skin really looks dry everywhere so I tried not to think much of it.
The other day it was looking dry and I scratched it and it was like a scab came off. Now there is a wound there and all of the color that was once there is gone, no more dark brown, more of a perfectly round shiny wound where the mole once was.
It bled a little but doesn't hurt at all.
Is two weeks too long to have this checked out?
