Is melanoma common at 26 male on leg? Also would melanoma come of with a fingernail? My reason is my friend scatched a black spot on leg.

Is melanoma common at 26 male on leg? Also would melanoma come of with a fingernail? My reason is my friend scatched a black spot on leg.

No: Melanoma is not common in a 26 year old and it would not come off from a simple scratch. If you still have a dark mole/spot you are concerned about please see your primary care doctor. Best wishes.

Could melanoma be picked off with fingernail? My friend is 27 and he pick a 3mm black spot on leg. He has panic attacks. Was it a melanoma?

Unlikely.: If the lesion really did come off simply by picking at it, it was unlikely to be a melanoma; but no way to know for sure without sending it to a pathologist. If there is anything left on the skin, he would be prudent to see a dermatologist to find out exactly what it is.

Need a photo: Black spots could be many things, including ingrown hairs, freckles, melanomas, and so on. To evaluate black spots on your skin it would be very helpful to have a photo. You may wish to consult with a dermatologist by requesting a consult in HealthTap Concierge, where you can attach a photo and get a response from a dermatologist expert who looks at the picture. Good luck

Get it examined: A board certified dermatologist will examine the lesion for atypia and perform a skin biopsy if warranted. Continue to perform monthly self skin examinations and don't forget to apply sunscreen daily.

Many possibilities: There are many types of rashes. Several types of inflammatory conditions of the skin, allergic reactions, and sometimes bacterial, viral or fungal infections can cause rashes on the skin. Insect bites can also be the cause of a rash on the skin. Have it evaluated by a professional and get the appropriate treatment.

Had full body bone scan had mottled white spots on hands wrists and feet legs black on my upper spine and a big black spot on the side of my face?

Need more info...: And I advise waiting for the official radiologist or nuclear physician report. What is seen on the technologist screen is not of the same quality as the physician interprets. Also, some physicians read them where lighter means more radioactivity, and others where black does, so your description cannot be accurately commented on.

Consultation advised: An online INBOX text consultation at Health Tap may be helpful. You can upload images of your heel as well as the history of your present problem. You need to be available during the day to reply to any questions your consultant may have. Several images of the involved area in sharp focus and including closeups would be helpful.
