Flat, dark brown, tiny beauty spot recently appeared on cheek. Cancer?!?! currently unable to afford detmatologist.

Watch for any change: Small black spots(nevi) are common and mostly benign unless they are growing in size or changing in color(mixture of colors is worrisome for cancer). So you can watch for any changes over the next few months. If it enlorges in size or changes in color and size then you need to go see a doctor to make sure that it is not cancer.. ...Read more

Get evaluated: There is no way to diagnose "a little brown spot" over the internet. It could range from a freckle to blood spot to something more serious. I doubt it's related to your numbness which really concerns me. It should concern you too. See a local dentist for an evaluation. ...Read more

Brown spot=No scar: This is the normal skin reaction when healing after inflammation if the patient is tan or has olive or brown skin. Is called PIH. It's not a scar and it willl fade away with time. To speed up the lightening, protect from sun exposure always, and apply twice a day a cream with hydroquinone(never above 4%), glyzirrhiza or licorice glycolic acid or retinoic acid. ...Read more

I have a dark red/brown spot inside my mouth, on the inner cheek. It's small. I first noticed it several months ago, forgot about it, and noticed it again while brushing tonight. I made an appt. with a dentist, but now I'm very worried. Cancer..?

Lesion: You did the right thing about seeking a dental evaluation. At your age the risk of oral cancer is very low. The fact that it's small and on your cheek also makes it less likely to be a cancerous lesion. Be aware that smoking of any kind and alcohol consumption increases your risks, especially if you do both. Get six month soft tissue examinations at your dentist. Don't worry. ...Read more

Oral melanoma cancer hi I have a brown spot on the inside of my cheek no way i bit it its by my bottom jaw ENT is keeping a eye on it she is not sure?

Rare diagnosis : Melanoma of the lining of the mouth or cheek is possible but very rare. However, if it is a melanoma it will become very obvious clinically in a short period of time. So just a "spot" is very unlikely to be a cancer. ...Read more

Light brown flat spot on right side of head near hairline not perfectly round but kinda  symetrical about the size of a pencil eraserwhat could it be?

Nevus?: sounds llike a brown nevus, or what people call a "birthmark". It sounds like it is flat, small and does not have discoloration or different colors or dark colors in it. These are all good characteristics and you should not worry about this lesion too much. However if it grows over time, if color changes, if it becomes raised, then consult physician. ...Read more

I had a brown flat spot just appear on the head of the penis a couple months ago and now a couple more popped up on the foreskin (im uncircumsised)?

I had a brown flat spot just appear on the head of the penis a couple months ago and now a couple more popped up on the foreskin (im uncircumsised)?

A couple things: These can be a type of mole called melanotic macules or early skin growths of seborrheic keratoses. These are completely benign & tend to happen more in some people versus others. There is a small possibility that these could be early flat warts. Seborrheic keratoses & warts would become more raised over time. I would recommend an evaluation by a dermatologist to make sure they aren't warts. ...Read more

Dark spots: The biggest concern abotu dark spots on the skin is melanoma, an aggressive skin cancer. While this is very rare on the penis, it can happen. You should have this checked by your doctor. It is not safe to render an opinion on the nature of such spots without actually taking a look at it. ...Read more

It's been almost 2 years that I'm having a blister kind of spot on penile head. It started with a tiny brown spot and then developed few more. Later it formed a shape like 'V' . Initially I started with Fucidin ointment but no improvement.

Rash: Hi, it’s hard to say without a picture but there is a great app that may be able to help you get a diagnosis without being seen in person by a dermatologist. The app is called VisualDX and is one of the best, if not the best out there. Many clinicians, including myself, use it. Just snap a photo and it gives you a list of possible diagnoses. Good luck! ...Read more

Noticed brown shiny spot on penis head. 2 DRs say irritation frm wiping frm mastrbating. 1 sex partner. no pain/puss. HPV or Herpes? How to cure it?

Noticed brown shiny spot on penis head. 2 DRs say irritation frm wiping frm mastrbating.  1 sex partner. no pain/puss.  HPV or Herpes? How to cure it?

Probably not serious: For sure this isn't herpes. I suppose it could be HPV, but a new HPV lesion would be rare at your age of 39. There are many possibilities, and the large majority of skin problems of teh penis are not STDs and aren't serious. Since two doctors apparently aren't certain, consider seeing a dermatologist. ...Read more

Itchy scalp, left swollen occipital and behind the right ear node and now sensitive light brown spot on left top of head today. ?

Swollen lymph nodes: Lymph nodes often swell in response to infection or inflammation. These gland may feel tender behind the ear or beneath the angle of the mandible. You may also feel tenderness beneath the chin. If the light brown spot has been sensitive for a short period, it will likely resolve on its own. It may simply be an abrasion or pustule. Give it time. If it fails to resolve, see derm doctor ...Read more

I have a brownish small spot on the head of my penis.I have never had sexual intercourse and I am not circumcised. Is it possible it's a birth mark?

Brown or Deep Purple: Yes. It might be a birthmark (congenital nevus) or a simple mole(nevus).Be sure it doesn't change in shape, size, color, & the edges are not jagged. If so go to the Doctor.
But, it might be a tiny bruise that would fade away. It might be an Angiokeratoma of Fordyce: tiny benign (not cancer) bump of blood covered with skin, they stay forever, you may get more on scrotum, if bleeds, put pressure. ...Read more

Skin findings: It is very hard to diagnose skin lesions over the telephone. If tender you might have an infection. start with seeing your primary doctor and if needed, a dermatologist.

My three and half years old son has recently develop a light white spot  on his cheek. What should I apply ?

Insufficient data: A "white spot" could be anything, so it is impossible to tell you what to apply without being able to make a diagnosis. Instead, take him to your pediatrician and let them make an actual diagnosis. That way, you'll get the best advice. ...Read more
