I've had an odd black spot on my leg for a few years. I kept ignoring it and it got a bit bigger and sprouted thick black hairs. I assumed it was just a mole. Then it started getting weirdly crusty and a small pit formed in the middle.

I went to a dermatologist today and she took a sample of it and sent it to a lab. She seems to think it's probably benign but she said because the borders were hazy she wanted to make totally sure.

If it's not benign, she says they'll do a "quick outpatient surgery where they will DIG IT OUT [emphasis mine] and sew it back up." Dig it out, folks.

Fingers crossed it's nothing.
