Hi, I had a very small say 2-2.5 mil brown spot on the inside of my ring finger about 1cm above my ring. It was brown in colour and had a little dot next to it. I stupidly removed the top layer of skin with a needle and am now worried it could have been a melanoma? I took a photo but don't know how to upload it? Thanks

I feel better already! Thank you.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
