Found a red scaly spot on outer thigh, groin level. i used a dermatologist app to assess pics of it. response was possible bowens disease. its about the size of penny. if it were bowens disease, could it really appear this size so quickly? ?

A picture is worth a thousand words but one must also feel the skin area and get a detailed personal and family history. Consult a real Dermatologist. Would you trust your car diagnosis to an online app?? I suspect not.
