Hello everyone,

I have Stage 1 melanoma history and recently had moderately atypical nevus removed by my plastic surgeon with clear margins. Yesterday I noticed a bluish line just in the middle of a scar. I am worried now about it: is it bruise, blood vessel or pigment???? Any thoughts? It drives me crazy...

Could be a stitch. It's a common occurrence. I would show it to your doctor to be certain, but don't worry unnecessarily.

with me I end up with little blue vein lines down the scar centres.

I too had a bluish line down my excision scar.  It scared me too, but it went a way after a week or so.  It's probably something normal so I wouldn't worry to much, but if you are concerned I would call your dermatologist and ask them about it.
