Skin cancer help pls

Posted , 2 users are following.

Hi I've had this for 5 days. It's a very very small black thing on my finger, I think it's under the skin. Also I have Diabetes so I have to prick my finger for blood and this thing is in the same spot so maybe it's something else?

It's not 100% symmetrical but pretty close

Only slightly raised doesn't hurt etc

Only one color

And am male 16 don't go out in the sun much

I showed my parents and they don't seem to be worried.

Here's a pic http://postimg.org/image/5s3nkq30x/

Thanks

    It sounds to me like you have had a small bleed that's been trapped under a layer or two of skin. The fact that you have to prick your finger regularly and the fact that you have had something similar before would support this theory. If it grows in size and/or becomes painful you should see a doctor. I think this is something quite benign. It's good that you are aware enough to keep an eye on things like this.

    Thanks a lot!

    I also searched Diabetic finger blisters and found a pic of a finger with the same thing I've got.

    I really get paranoid about this stuff and know I shouldn't.
