Apparent Lesion On Head - Should I worry? (photo)

Attached are 2 photos of this thing on my scalp. They were taken about 11 days apart and the thing has been there for about 3 weeks. I am a 49yo fair skinned male with a history of solar keratosis removal and sunburn as an adolescent. Could this be a nodular melanoma?

. You can not make a diagnosis on the internet. See you plastic surgeon or dermatologist for possible biopsy
