Sore that won't heal: What are the warning skin cancer? Sores that will not heal. Sores that grow bigger or turn into tumours. Sores or tumours in or around the orifices should be watched carefully as these can behave aggressively. See your dermatologist for a skin biopsy.

A 26-year-old female asked:

Saw doctor he pressed on and around my temple very firm and it has felt quite pressure and a bit sore since can he do damage?

Yes, yet unlikely: because it would likely require enough pressure to break your skull to do any significant damage. The far bigger issues: What is going in your temple area and, to a very minor degree, exactly where pressure was placed by what method. These 2 issues combined with mind/brain perceptions of "soreness".
