Thanks for sharing

Before I answer may I know what is your concern exactly?

Customer: replied 14 days ago.
I am worried it may be a form of basal cell carcinoma as I have had it for 6-8 weeks, it's irregular in shape,small,doesn't have any other symptoms such as itchiness and I cannot get into any doctors which worries me

Thanks for the details

This does not look like anything serious for sure

It can be a cyst or it can be a fat cell collection

You can get it excised if you are not comfortable with it

But the chances of anything sinister are highly unlikely

Secondly it is also not a usual site of basal cell carcinoma
