Skin cancer or wart?
« on: September 04, 2014, 09:34:12 AM »
I thought my skin cancer fear was over but it seems to always sneak up on me when I'm back in school  :spineyes:

I have this bump near my elbow. It's been there for over a year now and it was always skin colored and relatively small. I always assumed it was just a wart because I have had them before. Even when I had a big skin cancer fear earlier this year I wasn't too concerned about this.

But I've noticed it has changed? It's become reddish around the edges and sore and has some white-ish flaking at the top that has appeared over the past few days. It also seems a little darker in the middle.

I'm not sure if I somehow irritated it and I'm just irritating it further by checking it all the time or if this is skin cancer. I'm trying not to worry about it too much but I thought I'd post here to get some insight.
