A female asked:

I have this bump on my leg and it itches but there is a black thing in the middle of it and it kinda feels hot to touch to me but not others?

Get it checked: An itchy bump doesn't sound too worrisome, but anytime we hear there is pigmentation, "a black thing", we have more concern for skin cancer. For us a picture would help, but probably best to have your doctor take a look at it. Good luck!
