Thread: Strange spot, skin cancer?

  1. #1

    Strange spot, skin cancer?

    Hello. Itís been awhile. Itís not me but my husband.
    2 weeks ago he scratched a ďspotĒ on his shoulder it poured with blood. Stopped. He caught it again and it bled.
    It hasnít healed and gone away? Is it just a stubborn spot or something Sinister. A new form a of skin has layered over the top so I guess itís healing. But it looks a little shiny on top.
    Canít find anything too similar on dr google. However nodular melanoma has me slightly concerned.

    Thanks in advance from a worried wife.

    Donít worry. I once actually scratched a mole off and I didnít think it would ever stop bleeding. It eventually stopped and then healed and hasnít bothered me since. That was 8 years ago and Iím still here

    Thanks for your reply. How long did it take to heal for you?
    His has been there for 2 weeks itís not for bigger or anything. It looks like a little spot with blood underneath.
    Itís probably just a spot but anxiety has you thinking you never know right!

    Once I stopped fiddling with it, probably a few weeks. I went into panic mode with my anxiety but it was absolutely fine. I once also scratched a small mole/freckle off completely and it disappeared and never came back! Lol.

    Hi. He had an appointment to see a nurse a practitioner. Unfortunately she says it could be a nodular melanoma or it could be nothing a just a cherry angioma or nothing. Sheís referred him under the 2 week urgent referral.
    Iím heartbroken. I can barely function or breath.
    We have gone private. So heís seeing a dermatologist on Monday. But this wait is killing me.
    We have three little boys and I canít even think about what may or may not happen.

    Please don't kill your husband off just yet. It could be nothing at all and the worry will not do you any good.

    Just go with the flow.

    I wish I could. Iím so worried I feel sick to my stomach. This cancer is rare and even rare in under 60s. Heís only 31.
    I donít know how a spot can pop up for three weeks and be cancer.
    The lesion blanches under pressure. If I press it the blood disappears and then returns when I let go. Online it says melanomas donít blanch......
    It even looks smaller today. But Iím so frightened by what the nurse has said. Survival rates for this cancer arenít great at all.
    Iím just looking for comfort I suppose until Monday. I pray that nothing becomes of this.

    Yes so it highly unlikely to be cancer - try and be realistic and positive

    Even if it is cancer it can be cut out and then gone so why are you putting a death sentence on him?

    Because nodular melanoma is the worst skin cancer you can get. It spreads underneath very quickly. Making the survival rate even worse. This is why Iím worried. Iím so worried they will confirm my worst fears tomorrow. Iím not quite sure how to deal with it all.

    But no-one has said it is cancer.

    Wait and see before stressing yourself out so much and getting ill yourself over it.
