Scratched a spot on side of face. If you scratched the top off a melanoma would you see pigment underneath? And would it heal? Will the pigment return to the site? If it was a melanoma what should I look out for now the top has been scratched off?

If you are concerned about a melanoma, see an experienced plastic surgeon to evaluate the mole and determine its risk profile.
