I have had a few bumps on my forehead over a couple years.

Customer Question
One eventually cleared up, one...
I have had a few bumps on my forehead over a couple years. One eventually cleared up, one stayed the same but this one which started about two years ago seems to be bigger and more inflamed looking. Do you think this is a skin cancer? It's rough to the touch, and bled when I picked at it (Thought may have been a scab of some sort) it came back and seems bigger than before.

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

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.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
