Hi. I will do my best to advise. However, please note that this does not substitute an in-person consultation with a doctor.Absolutely. You should see a doctor. Based on your history this is probably an area of sun damaged skin called actinic keratosis. But one cannot rule out an early skin cancer. So best to get it checked.If you would like any additional information or have more questions please don’t hesitate to ask!Please remember to only rate my answer when you are 100% satisfied.
