Do I Have Skin Cancer (see Picture)?

Postby amaury » Wed Jun 04, 2014 2:18 am

I've had this red, inflamed spot just below my left eye.
It's been there for the last 2 years or so and it seems like it is getting larger.
I am a 23 year old man, live in South Africa where we have very hot days (high UV sun exposure) and I'm white.
Please view the picture and tell me if you think it's cancer.

Thank you.

Only a dermatologist can answer that question with certainty, and even then they would need to biopsy it to be sure. My husband had melanoma removed, but his was black, and changed from brown.

May be but I'm not quite sure.. you can ask a dermatologist. You can contact Advanced Skin Cancer centre. They specialize in the following area:

Skin Cancer

Mohs (Micrographic) Surgery

Dermatologic Surgery

Laser Surgery

General Dermatology

Cosmetic Dermatology.

If you want, you can contact them. It's good to have check up, right?
