Customer Question

I am 46 and have fair freckled skin which burns easily. when I was 18 I fell asleep on the beach and I got badly burned on my upper arm/shoulder resulting in blisters like bubble wrap. I was treated with flamazene cream. The skin in this area has become very dry and itchy with occassional broken skin patches, also if scratched, small white lumps appear. Should I be concerned about skin cancer? Is there a way of checking for or assessing this?
