Hi...thank you for uploading the image and I appreciate you telling me that it is a new growth and that it is getting bigger.

I extremely sorry to say that it requires a biopsy and histopathological examination or a microscopy.

The growth cannot be ignored as such and neoplasm need to be ruled out at the earliest.

I suggest you approach your dermatologist and get the biopsy done please.

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.
