Well it could be an evolving lesion so difficult to say exactly what it is. You need to observe it closely for any changes in appearance , color, size and border irregularity .

For how long has it been there?

I've had it for a three weeks maybe longer and it has changed colour it was red like a burn and now this...what can it be?
Dermatologist: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 8 months ago

Well it could be an evolving basal cell carcinoma. If that then it has very good prognosis. Can be excised which is curative in most cases.

You can consult your doctor for dermatologist referral to get a biopsy of the lesion.

Ok...I also have the attached mole in the same arm, not sure what that is...is it the same?
Dermatologist: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 8 months ago

Well this seems more ulcerated type lesion that is more typical of squamous cell cancer .however it can occur in BCC too so we need a biopsy to be sure on this

Have you been travelling of late? Any insect / flea bites?

Customer reply replied 8 months ago
I've travelled a bit but not sure maybe but they've been there for a month or so, they don't hurt or anything.
Dermatologist: Dr.Saleem, Doctor replied 8 months ago

Ok ,you will need a biopsy on these lesions to be exactly sure about the diagnosis. Definitely need to rule out sinister causes like skin malignancies .

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.

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.
