About 14 years ago I remember having what was a very itchy scab on my mid back, it was strange because I can't say it was a mole or that I hurt my back and it just kind of appeared all at once and was itchy and bled a bit. Well one day I scratched it a little too hard and the entire thing came off in my hand. It was strange and it left nothing behind but a tiny little hole in my back that still was there all these years later. I have always wondered if that was some type of skin cancer but took solace in the fact it had been so many years without any incident. A few days ago I felt something itchy on my bra strap line, I thought it was a bug bite but then it started to get painful, thought it was a cyst but it has not gotten any better and is a lump under the skin and now the skin is getting red in that area. The thing is I had my husband look and he said it is right under that little hole and there appears to be something red in the hole. I am so scared thinking that I have a Melanoma and thinking that is I had it all these years it may be all over. So scared.View Thread
