I have a tiny bump on my leg that is flesh colored and itchy.?

Postby budington69 » Fri Sep 09, 2011 12:47 pm

Its about the size of half a grain of rice. I only realized it was there because i was scratching my leg the other day and i accidentley scratched it off. It started to bleed right away. So when i went to look to see what happened i saw another tiny bump on my leg. So whatever its been 4 days and it stated to heal but i accidently scratched off the scab lol Is this cancer? I realized that i did some tanning this summer at the beach but only like 3 times. I do have fair skin and i did not use sunblock. I pretty sure what ever that bump is, it's new but then again i am not sure because i wasn't looking. And if it is cancer do they just remove it and that it? Im done? I always here about people having things like that removed and thats it there fine. Is it possible that its not cancer and its just a mole or something. Do people develop new freckles, or moles that are harmless?

I highly doubt its cancer. But just to be safe go to the dermatologists if it gets worrisome and they can remove it and the moles or whatever else mark that on your skin that is unusual. Use sunscreen a good one is Neutrogena spf 110+ sheer lotion. Goes on smooth and dry and not greasy. They have on for faces too. Saved my life this summer!
