Hello!

The APPEARANCE here is consitent with a skin problem called granuloma annulare....

This can't be truly diagnosed by picture alone and I advise that you see a dermatologist to help evaluate this ...

A small biopsy may be helpful to make more definitive diagnosis and guide treatment

I hope this information is helpful for you

Let me know If you have further questions or concerns

I will be happy to get back with you

If my answer has been helpful and to your satisfaction then please remember to leave positive feedback

Thank you and Best Regards,

basal cell carcinoma? Is what I was told from somebody, does that seem like a possibility? Would you say more granuloma than that. How long does it take for biopsy results? Thanks

Hello again,

It would be one of the important things to rule out certainly ( basal cell carcinoma ) but my impression is that the ring appearance seems more a fit with granuloma annulare (a benign diagnosis )

Biopsy needed and results usually return within one week ...

I hope that this is helpful for you!

Best regards!
