HI
Thank for asking to HCM
If it is finally diagnosed "Melanoma" then I would advise you to take the lesion seriously, for what you have described here , it may not be a emergency, but early detection of any pahological process can give good clinical response and result, you can go to ER, so they can inform the concern department for early treatment, have nice day.
