Exclamation Don't know what it is - Cancer? advice please.

My birthday is coming and I got a haircut, I relative pointed out something on the back of my head in which confused me, then they took a picture and it shocked me. for the past few years I thought I had a little scar, then I noticed this was something darker, with a lighter outline.

I do not know what it is, but I am planning on seeking medical attention Im hoping you may be able to give me an insight on what it may be?

(Remove the space between "Image" AND "shack" ) Picture: http://img69.image shack.us/img69/8266/headdot.jpg

Thanks in advance.

Re: Don't know what it is - Cancer? advice please.

Probably some kind of mole or birthmark. If it's been the same shape and size for a while, a mole isn't a problem. A mole that suddenly changes its appearance is a warning sign of possible skin cancer.

Unfortunately, this is the first time you've gotten a look at it, which makes it harder to be sure what's going on.
