The top is mine.the bottom is bcc. I'm going to try to find a free clinic to have it removed, or at least checked out..I'm scared..the cure rate is amazing, almost all cases are curable.but still..I don't have insurance, and this has been on my arm for years...I was scared at first because I always assumed it was just a weird looking mole..my sister told me to have it checked out but I ignored her..I figured, if it was cancer wouldn't I be sick? Ugh well wish me luck I'm going to see if there are any free clinics open tomorrow

It looks kind of like a blood blister, but I don't think they stay around so long without resolving. Good luck!

Why don't you think so? Do you have any idea what it could be? I couldn't find any normal looking mole that looked like mine..and it's hard, it's not soft like a normal mole

Looks like an angioma. I get them. I would still have it checked out though. You just never know. I had a flesh colored normal looking mole that turned out to be a very rare form of skin cancer. I only went in because it was new and itchy.

my mole is brown, but similar to yours. It's a circle and Not really soft either. I've had itmy whole life, So pretty sure its not cancerous.

Anyway, good luck tomorrow

if it has been the same size for years or if it doesn't hurt or itch, it might be benign but check with a doctor.

I don't think it's that it says on google they are painful.it doesn't hurt at all
