Re: Afraid I have skin cancer
The thing on your hand sounds like a granuloma or fibroma, a growth of scar tissue from trauma and inflammation to the area. If you look it up online, you may see some that look like it. The black spot should be checked by dermatologist. It doesn't matter if the birthmark has an uneven edge, but it does if the black spot has irregular edges. Any chance this is a small blood blister from a pinch? If so, it will shrink and disappear soon.
