Customer's Comment: This mole, or whatever it is, is on the outer of my right wrist joint. Approximately 11 mm.
It started a couple of years ago (could be longer) as a calloused area. It came and went, sometimes staying for a while but I don’t think it ever totally went away. It was a little itchy and would get slightly scaly if I scratched it.
Over the past few months it has gotten bigger and it cracks and feels sore. It might not be scaly or crack if I didn’t scratch it. It is quite noticeable by others.
I also have one similar on my right hand thumb knuckle. This one cracks often and is sore but is not as big as the one on my wrist.
My left hand middle knuckle has a rough area like the other two but is still flat, like when the others started. I don’t know if they are related. I do have mild plaque psoriasis but this seems different.

Customer's Comment: I've had this mole on my scalp for years but it has just started to get bigger and has skin tags hanging from it. It's about the size of a nickel now.
