i'm 16 years old and i spend a lot of time in the sun. i get realllyyy tan but i barely ever burn and i've never been to a tanning salon but today when i was laying out i was really looking at this bump that has been on my chest and it really worried me so i started looking up pictures of skin cancer and now i'm scared! my parents always yell at me about the sun but i ever listen!!! does this look like it could be cancer?!?

Doesn't really look like it is/could be skin cancer but if you're really worried about it it's best to go checkup with your doctor :-)

No. Looks like a pimple or an ingrown hair. The most common skin cancer is melanoma.The tumors look like moles. They are dark.
