I'm 28 and I've noticed a tiny black dot under the skin (looks like a black head but it's not) next to my lip. It's been there for about 6 months and hasn't gone away. I thought it was a black head at first but it isn't. I have scraped it until it went away but always comes back. My skin has been kinda ashy there since it has appeared. I'm feeling the economy just like anyone else and don't have insurance. I've searched the web and can't seem to find the same tiny balck dot! Everyone else discribes it on the hand or it grows. Mine hasn't grown or changed in anyway. Today I noticed my lip looks like its bruised. I don't know if it's connected in any way. Could this be cancer?

Reason: added something
get it checked by a doctor, better safe than sorry. i had a spot on my eyelid and rushed to doctor, melanoma i thought. it turned out to be just part of aging process. You are worried so get it checked. I know two people who died of melanoma in uk. One lad was 18, blond hair. The other was 29,
