Help!!! Thinking I have skin cancer....
« on: June 08, 2014, 06:07:58 PM »
So I was doing yoga in shorts last night and I noticed a little freckle on my thigh that idk just didn't seem right to me. So I stopped immediately and began picking at it and examining it. I went through the abcde and it didn't really seen to fit those criteria. It's just a bit darker then most of my freckles but it's not abnormally shaped or black or elevated in the slightest bit. It looks like a freckle but I'm so worried it's not. It's pretty small and I remember it's been there for a while but I'm just scared I have cancer and I don't know how long it's been there for.

Also there's 2 that I'm worried about and I've been squeezing them to see if they come off like a mole (and they don't) but it seems like there's a bump under it now...is that just because I've been squeezing them or is my mind just tricking me into thinking that something is there? Please respond somebody!

Sounds like simply a freckle to me, and YES if you continue to poke and pick at it, then a bump under it could form.......If you are truly worried about a skin cancer, I'd suggest a dermatologist, but honestly, I think it's simply a freckle.....keep your hands busy so you stop picking at it!!
