Does lump on the armpit always means breast cancer? I'm having it on my right armpit :(

No: Armpit lumps are rather common and can be due to a number of things including insect bites, rashes, swollen glands, and breast cancer. In your age group, breast cancer would be extremely uncommon. If this lump grows in size or does not start getting smaller over the next 2-4 weeks, you should definitely see a medical doctor for a full evaluation. ...Read more

Brown/tan color freckle on top of right chest bit darker then skin tone gyno thinks its a freckle doesn't itch 4mm size & asymmetrical is itskin cancer?

Probably not: However, since you asked us, you will certainly want to take it to a dermatologist. We can't diagnose at a distance on just a description. Many people have a lentigo or two on the upper body that looks out of place, and if a person feels uncomfortable about it, it's often wise to trust their intuition and simply remove it. ...Read more

Ring worm? : This may be ringworm which is a funny name for a very common fungal infection. There is no worm involved. Try over-the-counter Clotrimazole ointment. If it's helping continue to use it at least two weeks after you don't see any rash as the fungus lives below the skin. If it doesn't get better, as the previous physician suggested, go see a doctor for a biopsy ...Read more

I have a oval shape mole that I just noticed today on the bottom of my left breast it's dark brown almost black around the outside edge. It's flakey ?

Pigmented lesions: Key features that suggest a need for excision or biopsy of a pigmented lesion are 1)irregular vs. smooth margins, 2) variation in pigmentation; 3) any asymmetry; and 4) change in appearance/ or size. The flakey appearance you describe suggest a seborrheic keratosis rather than a true mole. These often look "stuck on" rather than coming from beneath the surface. ...Read more
