Hi I use the sunbeds and I have noticed a pink spot has appeared on my leg it’s been there for about 3 weeks and still hasn’t gone and recently I have been getting headaches and a cough , should I go and seek medical advice, thanks
Assistant: Is the headache episodic or daily? And what about nausea?
Customer: The headaches are daily and started about 5-6 days ago and I’m not nausea
Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?
Customer: I’m asthmatic but that’s all

Is that completely flat?

Customer: replied 10 days ago.
No it’s not flat

It certainly doesn't look like a melanoma or basal or squamous cell carcinoma--not any kind of cancer

It looks like a benign intradermal nevus--just a type of keratin build up

So I see no need for worry here but since I can only go by the pictures I'm obligated to advise you to have your doctor look at it

Please let me know if you need any more information
