Pink Bump
Dec 20, 2005

For the past year I've had a raised pink colored bump on the inside of my forearm. It's hard, and hasn't changed in size very much (smaller than a pencil eraser), and looks translucent. When I first noticed it I thought it was a pimple and tried to pop it. It scabbed over, then turned pink again. Sometimes it almost looks like there's a little white pimple on it, but that disappears and reappears randomly. Of course I'm worried that this is some form of skin cancer, and I have an appointment with a dermatologist set up for after the holidays. Also, in the past few weeks I've noticed a similar place on my scalp above my ear. It is covered by my hair, and when I first noticed it I thought it was a bump. It seems to have increased in size a bit. It is pink and slightly raised. I'm posting this to see if anyone out there has seen anything similar to these, and could give me advice. I'm really stressing myself out with worry that it's the worst. Thanks for any input!
