While the doctor agreed that the spot was troubling, she reassured me that in her 25 years of practice and with all of the concerning moles she has seen in young children, she has never, ever had one amount to anything other than just being an "eccentric" mole. To be safe she did refer me on to a pediatric dermatologist specialist.
I now have to wait the looong 1-2 weeks before the specialist's office calls to schedule an appointment.
In the meantime, the doctor's reassuring presence will allow me to sleep tonight and I am grateful for that.
Thank you for your kindness, friends and stranger-friends.
