Hair suddenly falling out, scalp skin lesions
I have not been able to access health care since a bilateral mastectomy in August 2020. I have taken jobs that did not have days off, trying to keep paying for rent and food, about to return to school for a third master's degree since I've only been able to find a little over minimum wage jobs here in California for the most part, without the ability to use health insurance. In any case, last week, my scalp started burning and I have had what an urgent care told me could be a "pre-cancerous" lesion near the scalp or at the scalp line and on my forehead (more than one spot). I went to urgent care because the scalp felt like it was on fire. Then, this week, my hair started falling out in large chunks, like a lot at a time, both yesterday and today. I don't seem to have bald spots yet, but I'm on the way there. Anyone ever have something like this? I had a margin of 4 mm to the chest wall and do not know if this is just a skin issue or something else. One scientific paper discusses scalp metastasis in "occult" or hidden DCIS metastisis, so I figured I could at least post and ask people who might know. I am about to be financially bankrupt due to inflation and wages not increasing to match prices or bills, and cannot work three jobs anymore physically or mentally.
