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

Brief Answer:
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 4 year old daughter is due to have an MRI in a week. Neurologist says she wants brain and spine due to her not being potty trained yet or even able to realize she has had a bowel movement....she has been to several docs and clinics and no firm diagnosis,... could the neurologist be thinking tethered cord??? She does have Sensory Processing Dissorder, Anxiety with panic attacks, major sleep disruption issues and hallucinations. They are doing a sleep deprived EEG to see if some of her myoclonis is seizure related. She is on meds: Risperidone and clonidine, with 3 mg. of melatonin as well. She has O.T. and P.T. once per week, with alot of motor control issues, gait , balance and ataxia. I feel she may have most definitely a chromosome deletion problem, genetic...somthing in that area. At one point they mentioned DiGeorge Syndrome, then didn t want to test. I had a Fragile X test started, and it came up negative. (my daughter also has alot of tantrums and inconsolable crying where she cannot stop. Where should I go if MRI and EEG come up with no answers...What next??? Her current psychiatrist suggests I stop looking for answers and work with what I have... I dont think that s a good idea...this is my daughter ...Please give me your opinion.... Thank You So Much, Michelle

My heart feels strange sometimes. Sometimes it beats to hard it feels like its going to beat out of my chest. It sometimes has an uneven beat or it skips a beat. I also have anxiety attacks for no reason sometimes. I am a 32 year old male and of a healthy weight. I am very active. I do have neurofibromitosis.

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)

For the past few days I have had heart palpatations, sore arm, chest pain, and pains in my legs alongside numbness in my arm. Is this just an anxiety attack? I had a hemotoma in my leg and was petrified they were linked, but each time I showed the doctors they didn't seem to think this was a possibility. I just need reassurance that it is only anxiety.
