My 5 year old has what looks like a large freckle all of a sudden on his scalp on the side above his ear. I cut his hair all the time and this is the first time I noticed it. It seemed to appear within 4 weeks. It is round and dark and I cant tell if it is raised because of his hair. He has a lot of dark thick hair so I didn't know how common skin cancers are in the scalp. I will contact my pediatrician on Monday but I was wondering if anyone has any info. Thanks!!

I'm not sure about that... I'm not a doctor or anything, but I know theyre are tons of derm. sites online that you can search through pictures and see if any of them look like what your son has.
i would advise u to see ur family doctor.. just for safety reasons then when ur done.. buy him some candy.. thats what my mom did.. cuz she didnt want me to be scared
Happiness is an attitude. We either make ourselves miserable, or happy and strong. The amount of work is the same.
