PS
And don't touch it until sure it is a black head or similar.

My cancerous mole was a melanoma and was black and hard, with a small blob on the top, which was a secondary on itself. And it was big.
As it is on your back and you can't see it properly , mine was on my arm, I'd get it checked with GP. When mine was diagnosed I then studied it and it had a red ring round it. Next day the red ring had turned darker and there was another red ring on the out side , so was rapidly growing. Ask GP if it has a red ring round the edge.
It maybe nothing, but better to be on the safe side, as mine was taken out just in time.

Showering - not showing!

I've taken the skin off the top of a raised mole?
I have a slightly raised mole on my back & I often get a spot right near it.
The last few days it felt like I had a spot there whilst showing - so have given it a prod & a squeeze.
Today it felt harder so squeezed & have taken the skin off with my nails.confused
Managed to manoeuvre my phone to get a pic & in 99% sure it's my mole!!
Do I need to worry?
