I'm a 20 year old male from Australia.
I have notice some new moles growing on my scrotum and the underside of my penis about a week ago and I'm concerned that it is scrotal melanoma.
The new mole on my scrotum is brown to black in colour, about 3-4mm, borderline is a bit irregular. I also notice some dark-coloured skin lesions scattered throughout my scrotum.
The mole on the underside of my penis is relatively small and black in colour, also has a irregular border.
I feel a weird itching sensation from the those two moles occasionally (i traced the feeling without look).
I showed my GP my new moles yesterday, he said I should get it checked and referred me to a dermatologist but I have to wait until the upcoming Monday.
I have a few questions:
1. Based on the symptoms, is scrotal melanoma possible?
2. If the melanoma is on my scrotum does it mean that it spreads quicker? (Since the skin on the scrotum is thinner.)
3. Can I get all my suspicious moles removed on Monday? Or do I need to wait for another surgical date? I really don't want to wait for the melanoma to spread before I remove it.
Thank you all for your precious time.
I am really worried, my mid-semester exams are near and I can hardly get into the mood for study.
I can't sleep at night without thinking and checking my moles.
