I have a mole on my right arm that I have had probably my entire life...I always remember it being there. Well, I woke up this morning and there was a small black scab on the mole. At first, I thought it was an ingrown hair growing through the mole. While I was in the shower, the scab came off and there was no bleeding...or really any broken skin. Now the mole looks like it had before the scab appeared. Should I get this checked immediately or wait and see what happens with the mole over the next few weeks? Thanks!
