Customer Question

Hi. Thanks! I have 3 small red marks on my shins. These have been there for many years. 1 is slightly raised. I cover them from the sun. Yesterday, one started bleeding a little. No pain. Could it be cancer - or more likely, did I cut myself shaving? I am 61 & female, otherwise healthy & not overweight.
