    I picked this mole I had on my arm last year as I hated the look of it but then it grew back and formed a scab, so I picked that Now it keeps growing back and im wondering if I will get skin cancer or something. I though I saw some black which indicates melonoma but its just a very tiny hair. Theres no point saying how stupid I am cause I know but what do you think?

    Stop picking at it and get a dermatologist to remove it. You will never know if it is melanoma or not until someone removes it.
