New, odd skin lesion, anxiety sufferer.

Postby wickermania on Tue May 15, 2018 6:52 pm


And thanks in advance for any help anyone may be able to give. Joining a forum like this and brazenly attempting to solicit the opinions of users is something I’m very much pained to do and would not have, save for my fairly serious issues with health-related anxiety.

My problem is that I’ve discovered a small-ish raised lesion in my upper back. It’s generally within the spectrum of normal skin colours, albeit perhaps a touch more towards the yellow end. No brown, blue or black that I can see. I have available a couple of hi-rez images that I hope give a good impression of the thing. It isn’t sore, itchy or bleeding and was discovered accidentally. It is somewhat raised, roughly oval and around 10mm at its widest.

Thank you in advance for any help you may be able to give me and apologies for gatecrashing a community that I’m sure has it’s fair share of issues with neurotic newbies seeking reassurance. I have a doctors appointment pending but it is some time away, hence my approach here.

Hello Wickermania and thank you for your post. Sorry you didn't get any responses from the community.

Just wondering if you've now had your GP appointment and whether you have a diagnosis?
