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
