Small scar on tip of nose

Rate this question


Ranmic

Question

I've been reading the criteria for scars....etc. Not sure where if any mine would fall. I had to have a small mole shaved off of the tip of my nose while on AD to see if it was cancerous. It's all in my record. There is a scar with a small deformation on the tip of my nose......imagine having the tip of your nose cut off though be it small. The entire scare might but 1/4 squared. It is clearly visible with a slight deformation (in my opinion). Do you think this would rate a VA claim? Thank you!

Go for it.  If it is painful or unstable underlying tissue, that get's you a higher rating.  Otherwise, it probably won't be much.  They go by measurement.  BTW, I have 80% for scarring, face, neck, chest and back.  So I know a thing or two about the process.  My initial rating for all this was 10%.  Appealed it with an outside IME and got it upgraded in a big way.
