Re: Spot On Arm. Could it be skin cancer?

I have had one lump the size of a large pearl removed from the side of my nose with surgery and three moles removed by (Liquid Nytrogen). All were a form of skin cancer but TG Non-Malignant.
My symptoms were mid-brown colour, scaly with indentation in the centre and all were itchy. A change in shape or colour/size along with the mentioned symptoms should be investigated as soon as possible. I will now be monitored regularly as I have more that are not at this stage.
I would recommend seeing a Dermatologist and even if its nothing to worry about let him decide that.
