    How common is skin cancer on the finger PADS?

    I can't seem to find much information on this. I run searches and it turns up all sorts of results for cancer under the nail beds, on the palms, and on the soles of the feet, but nothing about the finger pads.

    The reason I am asking is I have this mark on the pad of one of my thumbs...I had generally thought this was probably related to stress applied in that area from bowling, but it hasn't gone away so I'm a bit worried. I'm not entirely sure when I first noticed it...I would say it's been there for 1-2 months, to be on the safe side. I don't think it was there in 2010.
