    Brown spot for 2 years

    Hello, I am a 22 year old male. I first found Thai brown spot on my finger tip over 2 years ago. I didn’t think much of it. I believe I remember maybe a splinter being in that spot and guessed it was a bruise, however recently I saw melanoma pictures that look similar to this, it frightened me. I am planning on going to the doctor but my appointment is a weeks away and I am very stressed. Any idea if this is melanoma or not? It hasn’t changed size or shape since I got it 2 years ago.

    Weird black/purple lump

    Hey everyone new here but I thought I’d try and get others opinions. I noticed a painful feeling on my lower leg on Wednesday like when an ember land on bare skin and since then a black lump with localised swelling has appeared on my leg . I first thought it was a spider bite but there are no puncture holes, also it is very tender and quite painful to touch ( picture attached) any help would be much appreciated

    Does this look like melanoma

    I don't remember when this showed up on my skin, maybe 4 years ago. I never got it checked until recently. My pcp wasn't to concerned but I am going to go to a dermatologist anyway. I am waiting for my referral and I am feeling really nervous! I am just wondering if anyone thinks this looks cancerous. Also if it is how worried I should be that it's been there so long. I know no one can say for sure online but I would just like some opinions. Thank you.

    Look for email! What is this?

    Discovered in my teens, what I thought was a birthmark i had never seen. I am now 27. Last week I took my toe polish off and discovered my nail had started turning dark. Though I don't remember smashing it. The place between my toe is not too noticeably sore. But it's kinda like in the bone of my little toe feeling. It's hard to explain. I can't find any thing in photos like compare to what I have, so I am not sure if it's just mole, skin cancer, or wart. I can not upload a photo....

    Skin Cancer??

    I have no idea what's going on. I have super itchy patches of discolored skin. They almost look like bruises and some are red. Some feel like dry skin, others don't (they feel normal). I've looked at a bunch of images of skin cancer and it doesn't match, but it seems extreme for dry skin. I've always had dry skin but this has never happened. It's been getting steadily worse for about a year and went from one patch to this (pictures attached) on my ribs. It acts up the worst....
