okay, laugh if you want, but a few months ago my hand got burnt by a magnifying glass (don't ask why). Now in that spot I've still got a pink, shiny kinda spot. Is this likely to turn into cancer? how soon?

It is a burn scar. Not that likely to turn into anything else. Signed, Dying of curiosity :jester:

Since the magnifying glass burns by concentrating sunlight, a woulda thought this would be like an extremely highly concentrated sunburn, and therefore very likely to turn into cancer (if not certain). But I could be wrong. Just don't wanna die of skin cancer before i've really achieved anything in life.;)
