Question: Over the last several days, ive been uploading pictures of moles that I have. Unfortunately I have had a long wait to see my dermatologist, which will be on 7/29/14. As you could imagine, I'm very anxious and I've been consulting with your service on several mole that I have.

The one I'm consulting about today is on my left shoulder. It has been there awhile. A dermatologist just checked this area out about a month ago but was looking at the scar I have from a previous Biopsy. I didnt think to ask the dermatologist about this "mole" . I'm not sure it is even a mole or a dysplastic mole. This area has been looked at prior in January 2013 as well. I just can't be too sure if ive noticed any changes. The size of the area of the pigmenation is greater than 6mm. It is flat. No itching or bleeding or any past trauma.

Brief Answer:
Dysplastic nevus

Detailed Answer:
Hello

I am Dr. Kakkar. I answered your previous related query too. This is a dysplastic nevus as well. Well defined but irregular margins, colour variegation, size > 5mm. If you can appreciate, as compared to the surrounding pigmented lesions, it is different looking, larger and has colour variegation.

I hope you don't start hating me. Please don't worry. A dysplastic nevus does'nt mean that it will turn into a melanoma.

Please get a detailed skin examination on your next visit with a dermatologist which is not too far away.

I could not start hating you lol. I appreciate the service you guys offer. You can literally drive yourself into a panic attack by looking on the internet at images and website. I appreciate your professionalism as well.

Another detail of the nevus is that it is flat and it's about 8mm in diameter.

Thank you again Dr. Kakkar S. You are a good man

You are welcome

Detailed Answer:
Hi.

Let me know what your dermatologist says about these. I would suggest a dermoscopic evaluation of these lesions. Dermoscope gives a better, magnified view of structural features and also better visualises the pigment distribution pattern, whether it is regular or irregular.

Take care

My mum (79) demanded that she come off bisoprolol after taking for 3 years, as she felt she should not have been on it. The doctor agreed and she is now suffering with increased heart rate (120bpm) at times, but wont see a doctor. She suffers generally with her nerves and feels that going back on the bisoprolol again will calm her down. Is she just panicing or will the panic attack be because of coming off the bisoprolol? She also came off bumetanide at the same time, for the same reason (ie she felt she should never have been put on those tablets)

I started experiencing an electrical shock sensation during sleep several weeks ago. I am 51 yr old female. My DR prescribed xanax for nighttime panic attacks, but the shocks continue. I have them every night, several times and if they are particularly bad, I have to catch my breath. Almost like hypervenitilating. Trying to get scheduled for sleep study....any other suggestions?

I am 21 year old female, 5'6 150 pounds, and for the past few months, perhaps about two months, I have had moments where my chest feels incredibly tight. A lump in my throat. Pain in my chest and neck. It is very painful when it happens and last from about 6 minutes to 25. I am wondering what this could possibly be, some people suggested anxiety attacks?
