Why do I have a new skin growth that is itchy and hurts with a red ring around it? Could it be a cancer?

In brief: Not likely
What you described sounds like ring worm, a fungal infection.
You can try over the counter treatment, however, if it is not better in about two weeks, you should consult your doctor.

In brief: Ring worm or skin ca
Really sounds more like ring worm. Which is a misnomer..
.No worm involved. But it could be a fungus which usually looks like what you are describing. Have your primary care md take a look and than get rid of it!
