This spot appeared on my 9 year old daughter's forehead about 3 days ago and it has grown considerably since then.


My wife does have a history of skin cancer so we are a bit paranoid about this type of thing. But unlike her mother, my daughter is not fair-skinned and does not have very many moles.

The other concern that I have is a potential spider bite. We live in Maryland so both Brown Recluse and Black Widow spiders are present.

We'll be taking her to the doctor regardless but it would be nice to get some opinions. Our dermatologist normally has a long waiting list.
