See your derm: Any new skin lesion or one that is changing should be brought to the attention of your friendly dermatologist. While skin cancers in 25 year olds are not common it does happen occasionally. Remember to protect your skin by limiting your exposure to UV radiation and when you are out wear sunscreen and cover up as much as possible.
