A 29-year-old female asked:
Disclaimer

I have a mole on my left arm that feels bruised and the bruised feeling goes all the way around. Could this be a sign of skin cancer?

See a doctor: You most likely simply have a bruise in the same area that you have a mole. Please see a doctor to be certain.

Depends on pathology: If biopsy is positive, it's a cancer. If equivocal, repeat biopsy may be necessary.
