Skin Cancer - Pimple turns into a black scab looking head

    
Asked by Unregistered on Wed 26, Mar 2008 08:37pm

I had what I thought was a pimple on the side of my face for a few weeks, getting ready for bed last night and realized the "pimple" now has a black scab looking head? Never picked or tried to pop it the whole time I have had it, so it took me by surprise to see the change. It never really felt like a pimple no tenderness or head. Just wondering your thoughts. I am fair skinned, freckled and a red head. I have a appt. set up with family DR. for 4/4. Should I try to get in earlier? Thanks for any help.
