Not if it isn't: changing over time. and small. large are likley cancer. Most commonly associated with fungal infections (not active, previosu ones). would expect a cancer to change in size and shape. Some shapes that are regular are not cancer (bulls eye circles of calcium). Without an actual examination, I cannot give specific medical advice on your particular health,.
