Customer Question

I have had a y small lump on my skin kind of under the skin. However, some 6 to 7 weeks ago I noticed that it had actually become a sore. It is very itchy and I cannot touch it but it bleeds. When it bleeds it is very aggressive like it just pumps out.It has been like this for 6 to seven weeks now and not healing at all.

thanks for this excellent question.

This sounds like possibly a local skin cancer like basal cell carcinoma or even melanoma.

This needs to be biopsied right away.

I would suggest you see a doctor ASAP

I hope this helps.

If you have more questions, just reply. :)
