I have brown spots on lips? I have 4 of them and they look kind of like freckles and are flat as well. Is this some sort of skin cancer?

See Ender's Game

Cancer
the movie - teen actor has it too. It is unlikely to be cancer. Peutz Jaeger's syndrome, associated with GI AVM's is a possibility. Ask your PCP/iternist first. But no rush.

Bottom lip had skin cancer, treated w/aldara over 1 yr ago. Cancer gone. Lip still huge & chapped. Nothing helps it. Tried everything w/dermatologist.

See Surg/Derm

Imiquimod
This may very well be side effects of Aldara. You should go see your dermatologist to find out. More importantly, you need to be sure that you don't have an underlying skin cancer. And if there is no recurrence, you can talk to a plastic surgeon or in some cases oral surgeons or ear/nose doctors about surgical options such as cheiloplasty. where some or all of the damaged mucosa could be shaved.

Could any1 in the skin cancer sector take a look at my pictures in my health records and tell me what u think?

On-line advice

Cancer
Your concerns really need to be addressed with a face to face visit with a local physician. No prudent doctor would give you advice on-line based on photos alone. But if you have a lesion that bleeds, changes color, grows rapidly, or cycles through healing and breakdown repeatedly, you should see a doctor for further management.

ABCD's

Remember your ABCD's when thinking of melanoma. Look for moles with Asymmetry Boarders that are irregular Color differences within the same mole Diameter greater than 6mm Also any new mole or old that starts to itch, bleed or ulcerate should be of concern. Another rule is the ugly duckling rule. Which refers to a mole that looks distantly different from the others on your body.

Dr. Mike J. Bowman answered:

Coler of skin cancer?

Varies..

Melanoma
Melanomas are often pigmented (dark) lesions with asymmetric borders and different colors within the cancer. Other skin cancers are more "skin colored" but often have scaling, ulcerations, prominent blood vessels, or a pearly appearance. All skin cancers enlarge with time. If you have doubt about a spot on your skin get it checked out.

Dr. Mike J. Bowman answered:

Is skin cancer curable?

Usually

Cancer
In general, yes. There are many different types of skin cancer, and they all behave differently. As mentioned above, if caught early, all cancers are very curable. The speed with which they spread is very different from tumor to tumor. If you have any skin lesions which are changing, bleeding, or are otherwise concerning to you, have it evaluated by your doctor as soon as possible.
