Hi new to the forum, so please be gentle http://www.skincell.org/community/Smileys/default/grin.gif I have got a slightly raised bump/growth on my right temple that is causing me to worry. The thing is only small (size of my small finger nail) and slightly raised with a crusty top, It has a white root connected to it though which has me worrying. This root must be connected to a blood source as it bleeds quite a lot when I pull the root out.

I have recently had a blood test where the result has come back with a slightly high reading on the white blood cells and platelets counts. I am due to give another blood test next week along with seeing my doctor. Any advise or ideas on what it could be?

Sorry for rambling, it's just shook me up a little....
