So I know I am an overly worried horsey mama but hopefully someone can put my mind at ease.
Phantom's skin is mottled. It's a mix of Blue/grey and pink. Since he does have the pink skin I do worry about melanoma. I always check his sheath and under his tail and I never find anything(thank goodness)
Anyway, he has these weird bump/scab like things on the right side of his head below his ear. He's had them for about a month. I thought they were a bug bite or a scrape and I thought they would go away but they haven't. They haven't gotten any bigger though. They don't hurt him when I touch them. I just don't know what they are and why they aren't going away. They are not near where the halter lays and even then he doesn't have the halter on out in the field. They are raised about a 1/4 of and inch off his face and feel very dry.
Could it be melanoma? Is it possible for melanoma to show up there?
Maybe I'm just paranoid.
Here are some pics of them
