Does this look like a skin cancer in your opinion.
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

No, it doesn't look like a skin cancer. Pain or itch? Any medical problems? Any medications? Any family medical history? Any other symptoms? Are you aware of anything which might have triggered it?

Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It has been there for months but is now bigger. My dad has a history of skin cancer. My only medical problem is hypertension and very thin skin on my arms causing breakdowns.
Expert:  khagihara replied 1 year ago.

It could be fungal infection. You should see a dermatologist to have the skin sample examined.
