Good question: This may or not be a cancer, but without changes in appearance in 2 1/2 yrs and not knowing your complete medical history I would suggest that you follow your physician's plan and to feel better emotionally ask him/her to refer you to an oncologist for a second opinion. It is not unusual for doctors to agree to this request.
