I wanted to ask for your prayers and your good thoughts. I have a mole on the back of my head, it's big, but I've had it all my life. Where it is positioned, I have to ask the hair dressers to be careufl because they can and sometimes do hit it, making it bleed and everything.
Today while drying my hair...I felt it and it has changed BIG TIME. I am stressing out and freaked out by this. I am going to the doctors tomorrow at 10am to talk about getting it removed and tested.
Please please ask for it to not be cancerous. My family, friends, and especially my husband don't need to stress of me possibly having cancer...especially if its in my head/brain. Thanks guys I totally appreciate it...going to go out for a little but to try and get my mind off of it...it's really freaking me out.
Sweetie, your scalp is not attached to your brain.
Moles of this sort frequently change, every once in a while, it is cancer. BUT!!!!!! Its easily removed, becuase you did the right thing, kept an eye on it, and reported changes right away. Problems happen when people ignore changes. Change itself is NOT an indication of cancer, either.
I have known several people who have had cancer, got it removed, and were fine. AND several people, myself included, who got freaked out, and it was nothing. In any case, your going to the doctor tomorrow, good for you. It will all get taken care of. No need to panic. I totally understand the fear, but you've got to think positive, and understand moles are NOT always cancer. Im sure you'll be fine, and we are all here to support you, no matter what.
Chances are it'll be fine. My sister had similar concerns, also on her head, and it was absolutely fine Wishing you all the best!
Crazd, u ok now?> HUGS for you and I will pray for you as well, thanks for the update
I will pray that everything heals cleanly.Pamper yourself and plan a relaxing break with your loved ones.
I wish you the best. My friend recently went through a similar episode, and her mole turned out to be benign. Even if it is not, in today's day and age, you have nothing to worry about. I'll be praying for you like crazy though!!
Hey calm down sweetheart, there are a thousand reasons why this mole might have changed.
Maybe your hairbrush knocked off it a few times, maybe it was bleeding when you didn't notice and infection got in.
Fingers crossed for you, but honestly please don't worry too much. It could be something or nothing, but you are right to get it checked out
Hang in there, Crazd...there is probably a reasonable explanation for the change. We'll wait for the expected good report from the doc...keep us posted!

You have them, of course. Love and good luck.
My best friend was just diagnosed with noninvasive cancerous melanoma. He has a mole and it has also changed. The procedure is pretty simple. The Dr. simply removes it, and they test to see whether or not it's aggressive or not.
Chances are, Crazd, that it's nonaggressive and can be removed without a great deal of worry or stress. Even if it's invasive, it's not likely that it's advanced since you don't seem to have any other signs of it anywhere else.
Just want to give you a little practical viewpoint about it. Be as rational as you can about it, and let the facts speak instead of all this convulsion of emotions. The emotional upset won't help your hubby or family at all. It will make it worse. The more rational and calm you are about this, the more it will keep their drama from interfering with what you need to do.
Sending all best thoughts, energy and prayers. Keep us posted.
I've wished it away and to be gone. And so it will. Just watch. Blessed Be. Good friend.
Good thoughts and positive energy being sent to you as I type.
I'm glad you're doing the smart thing and having it checked out right away. Take care.
It will be OK Crazd. Try not to think about it so much. Distract yourself with a movie, a good book a walk if you can. Can't do anything about it until you know what it is. Don't jump to worse case secnerios so soon!
I have one on the back of my neck, right in the middle. I have had one hair dresser actually clip it off by mistake. She asked me if I wanted it put back.(and no she wasn't nervous about doing it)
I told her yes and to this day, I inform every person who cuts my hair to be aware of it being there. Mine has changed, but I am pretty sure you will be okay.
I had one taken off years ago under similar circumstances. My doctor said the odds were astronomical against there being any problem, but they have to check it out just to be sure.
I now have something to blame my brain farts on, even though anatomically, it doesn't add up.
lol blame that on your brain farts. that is a good one Ron i'll have to use that one think anyone'll believe me?
Thanks guys I am doing my best not to think about it but dang it's hard...especially because now I keep touching it. I can't keep my hands off of it now lol
and I know it's not attatched to my brain. Justine, hehee just my imagination running wild with me yet again. damn imagination
I've already had to have...two shaved, and two removed...one was an accident but the other two I wanted because two were changing and they weren't in the best place (my left breast and rigth chest) and the second because i was so damn tired of them having to do biopsy because it was on my side of my should/back and it was teh size of a quarter
so yea I always jump to the negative because one of everything that happens in the family and two I'm adopted so I truly don't know health wise for my sperm and egg donor and their family.
Hey Crazd! Yeah, I know that it can be scary when you first notice the change, and then you're fears overtake your emotions. HOLD ON! Don't panic...wait to see your dr. tomorrow -- it's the first step you need to take. From there, the next step will be presented to you. Always take one step at a time, and never make assumptions as assumptions will invoke the fear within. I'm positive that all will turn out the best. I'm thinking of you Bella! Hugs, prayers, hugs and more prayers for you. xoxox
I had something just like this. It was really icky - turns out it was just a harmless cyst. The doctor said it would eventually go away by itself and it did.
Good luck to you - I'm sure you'll be fine.
Stay positive,as just think of all the stress you will have saved yourself when you go to the doc, to find out it's all good. We are all beside you.
thanks again guys...ooo making my mom a St. Patty's wreath to help keep me calm. hopefully I won't burn my fingers lol I hate when I stress. Don't need anymore and I always seem to find other things to add to stress about. Of course this is a big thing but still don't want more unneeded stress.
CW...it will be ok....we're all here for you! (((virtual hug))))
I sent up a prayer, Crazd! I had something similar on my back, something called a nevis. It was benign.
glad it was benign habee.
and glad that everyone else who ran into a similar problem that everything was okay. makes me feel a bit better since everyone has been getting positive feedback from their doctors' about the mole or whatever else it could have been.
Crazed I sent up prayers too! I am praying it is a benign dealy you are dealing with.
Just remember that if it is something else - you have a friend who has been diagnosed 4 times and she is only an email or phone call away Holly
I will pray for you also. It may be nothing, but I know it is hard to think about. Try to stop touching it and thinking about it. People are always bad to fool with things that hurt. Like pulling a scab off of a sore. Sometimes we just need to keep our hands away.
I believe it is only infection. This is what I keep hearing in my mind. Of course I could be wrong.
A mole that is infected...maybe but I don't remember hitting it with my brush again. I hope that is all that it is, SirDent
You and I are sort of in the same boat.
I am seeing a specialist actually today about a mole on my leg, that I'm told is looking suspicially like a melanoma. I have very fair skin and being a Queenslander, from Australia, I don't go out in the sun very often. I am very worried also because as well as my MSA, I really don't think that I could cope with any more serious illnesses being handed to me.
I am asking therefore for everyone's prayers today for when I see the Specialist. I think I am going to need them.
I will also be thinking of and praying for you to Crazdwriter.
I will keep my fingers crossed for you as well.
Love Beautybabe x
Hey my friend. Hasnt anyone ever told you that fishing is the best thing to relieve stress.
See you say you stress about everything. If you took up fishing the stress would go away. LOL
Anyways on the lighter side we all know all will be okay and thats because we say so.
Your doing the right thing by going to the Dr in the morning but dont let this beat you up.
you and fishing Dale LMAO I am not going fishing NO NO NO! may be a stress reliever but no way am I going near another fishing hook again hahaha you are too funny. You always know how to make me laugh.
And thanks Dale for the laugh and for thinking about me. I'll not let it beat me up.
Hey Crazd,.. Keeping you in my prayers,,.. My dad used to get them all the time on his head,.. never turned out to be anything serious,.. So hopefully the doc will tell you everything is fine,.. keep us posted !!!!
Thanks AIM I will keep you all posted on what we talk about. And I do hope that it's nothing too...stupid moles! lol
HEY you changed your pic. very nice!
Well today is the day and I have an hour to go....I am nervous as all he!!. Can hardly eat my cereal...didn't have much dinner..that is the one thing I truly ahte about getting nervous or anxious...I can never really eat
I went in and he removed it for me so now I have to just wait until he gets the results from the lab. I saw it too....it was gross! lol now I have 3 stitches in the back of my head and will get them out in 7 days. Glad it's gone though. Now I just have to deal with the annoyance of feeling the hole in my head and the stitches but at least it is gone
Good ! I'm happy for you !
No big deal! A lot of people have them
If I weren't such a nice person (well, at times) I'd make a remark about you not needing another hole in your head.
Oops. Sorry! It slipped out!
I sincerely hope you get your good news soon so you can relax. Take care.
I can't believe you looked at...EEEEWWWW...and I was eating lunch while I read this
now you know when it comes to me not to eat when I post stuff...well not all the time but still. And yep I looked. I was curious. I mean it was on the BACK of my head so I couldn't see it and I wanted to see what I had to share the back of my head with lmao
Glad that you're back...extra hole and all! It'll all work out fine. Breathe. And relax. Thinking of ya! (((HUGS))
Sweetie, worry won't help. Hang tight. All the odds are in your favor. 20,000 to 1 its nothing.
Crazed, I know waiting for results is the worst. Know that I am still praying and that Jesus is already there Holly
CrazD. Millions of people have millions of moles and they aren't pretty. The chances of this one causing you any more trouble than it has is slim. Good luck to you.
I have been away from my computer for weeks. I do hope you have had the mole examined. I hope to hear a good report soon.
I wish you all the best CW, try not to worry,I am sure it will be fine. Lot's of luck and good thoughts.
Crazd sending all good thoughts your way! please keep us updated.
WISHING YU THE BEST, CRAZD! by now, this may all be old news, is there an update - shall I just go back and look at a few pages here?
Just a note: a mole is topical. It's within the skin group and not the brain!! So right there you have a big positive.
I also wouldn't worry, moles constantly change with age. It's actually very normal.
I always say not to let yourself stress or freak out. I know we read and hear a lot and getting a professional opinion is great but don't let yourself get stressed since THAT harms your health and probably will be the worst thing you experience since I'm sure you'll be healthy otherwise!
I've been passing this along and it may be something you've come across but there is some really great research regarding Cancer and Vitamin D <snipped link> its worth a read. I'm sure everyone here will be simply preventing anyhow!
Best of luck and good health!
