Earlier this week I noticed this small pink patch on the lower half of my inner thigh. I don't generally inspect my body for skin lesions, as I have never been prone to moles, skin tags, body acne, etc...So I can't say for certain how long it was there, whether it developed over time, or it appeared suddenly. The main thing that caught my attention was that it looks like a bump or a sore but it doesn't itch or sting. It's not irritating in any way. But I did some searching and believe it may be a pretty minor case of BCC. It's slightly raised, pink, and there is some peeling skin in the center. I clippered the hair around it and also darkened the pictures slightly to show detail. It's much more pale looking in real life.
On one hand I doubt that it's BCC as it's on a part of my body that has probably never seen daylight. I'm not one to spend much time outside, and when I do it's primarily my face and arms that are exposed. I also understand that it develops more often in older people. I'm only 20 years old. On the other hand, it does seem to match the appearance of some of the BCC pics I've found online; although I realize that a pink bump with slight peeling is about as nonspecific as it gets, and could be any number of other things. Just looking for some input, thanks!
