Hey Doctor! I'm a 19 year old boy, and I've had a small spot

Resolved Question:

Hey Doctor! I'm a 19 year old boy, and I've had a small spot of pain just above my Adam's Apple. I smoke regularly so I'm just always alert. Is it something I should get looked at? I have a female family history of breast cancer on my father's side for point of reference.

This spot seems very unlikely to be anything serious or anything to worry about.
It may just be a small area of fungal infection of the skin.
You can try using daktacort skin cream for three to five days two to three times a day to see if that helps.
This does not have anything to do with your family history.
This does not look like cancer at all.
Let me know if you have more questions.
Kind regards
