My daughter, who is 20, has a raised pink mole on her scalp. It has been there for several years. The one in question now has a purplish line running through it. My thought is that it is a visible blood vessel. Is it a change that requires seeing our dermatologist? Her dad passed away from melanoma. She is fair skinned, blond hair and blue eyed. She has many moles on her body. She does see a dermatologist once a year. It is not her time yet, but I would certainly send her in if warranted.
