Avatar n tn There is a brown line on my upper back. I would like to know if this is skin cancer??? I've been in the sun a lot in the summer and sweat. Its quite long.
Avatar f tn The dark marks are so bad that I apply cover up makeup to the area to hide them. The bleaching cream seems to be only lighting the area around the dark spots so I stopped using it. I have tried numerous creams and not getting any good results. What can be the cause of my outbreak and what if anything can I do to get rid of the dark marks?
Avatar f tn Melanoma, Non-melanoma' 'Actinic or solar keratoses, is a concern because it can progress into cancer. Actinic keratoses are considered the earliest stage in the development of skin cancer, and are caused by long-term exposure to sunlight. They are the most common pre-malignant skin condition.' Avoid sun exposure, use calamine lotion and a medicated sun screen, wash your face several times, and talk to your skin specialist. You could read more about this at - http://www.fda.
Avatar n tn Hi Dr. Rockoff, I've had a certain condition for a long time now. I have many dark brown spots under the uncircumcised skin area of the penis. It is in various spots around that uncircumcised area and is located all around the uncircumcised portion. Some of the spots are darker than others (some are even transparent). One particular spot is 1.5cm in diameter and the rest are around .5cm across.
Avatar f tn Dark scaly spots on the skin can be due to a localized skin infection, most commonly bacterial or yeast, less commonly ringworm/fungal infection or demodex mange mites. The increased licking (which is the way dogs scratch themselves when they are itchy), suggests infection is causing itch. The skin increases pigment as a protective response due to the inflammation.
Avatar f tn Is there a possibility to remove the dark spots in the face after you had pimples? It seems its very dirt in my face and I’ve got irritated. I also have blackheads in my nose and I’m very conscious. Should I consult to a dermatologist? I hope there’s an alternative way in this problem to the less expense.

Avatar f tn I have dark spots on my right breast, it almost looks like a birthmark....
Avatar m tn I am an 18 year old male and i have dark circle spots on my chest and back. I also have spots on my neck but they're not as dark as the ones on my chest. Some people call it liver spots but i don't know what it is. There's no symptoms to it, it just bothers me. But i do want to know what it is and how to treat it.
Avatar n tn i recently discovered some dark spots on left side of my back.
Avatar m tn Spots on the skin is a common skin problem especially beginning in middle age. You should go to doctor for advice as soon as possible. Spots can become harmful for skin.
Avatar f tn Almost two weeks ago, I noticed I had these dark spots on my stomach. They are not big but there are several or so. Initially they were kind of red around the area, reminding me of small grease burbs you get while you're cooking & the grease pops you, & they were slightly peeling. Several days later I noticed smaller reddish bumps starting to appear & my skin was starting to look splotchy.
Avatar n tn Im not sure WHAT this is but i have recently started the tanning bed and today i laid a little longer... well when i got out i have these dark red spots on my shoulder. like a cluster of red spots... it looks like blood raised to the skin? it actually looks exactly like freckles but only in a small clustered area... they were not there b4 and i can tell they are not new freckles? could this be bad??
Avatar n tn my problem is that i have got a lot of dark spots in my face. i have also got dark circles around my eyes. as a whole my skin looks so dull.
908119 tn?1242581984 I asked my best friend (whose mother passed from breast cancer) showed immediate concern when I showed her one of the spots that was in my cleavage area. Can this be a sign of breast cancer? Dark discolorations (brown and pink) and seering burning pain?
Avatar n tn By far the most common cause of dark skin spots on people who have dark skin is just extra pigment from irritation. Maybe you had some eczema or just inflamed skin where you see the spots. I'm sure hat it's nothing to worry about. The dermatologist should be able to straighten you out. Take care. Dr.
Avatar f tn Well, it's probably not cancer and this is a cancer board. I've noticed many other women posting similar questions over on the women's health board. They might have some answers for you. Just click on "forums" at the top of this page and scroll down till you find the category. Good luck.
Avatar f tn If the spots aren't raised, scab-like, inflamed in any way, but instead are just like freckles, then I don't think that's anything to worry about. My previous dog, who was a white dog, developed these freckles both on his testicles, and on his belly. And it wasn't age-related for he had them when he was younger too. It WAS sun-related. He always developed them in the summer, and they faded away in the winter. Also, they were not related to skin cancers of any kind.
Avatar n tn A couple months later, the flat spot (smaller than a pencil erasor) seemed to be blackened with an irregular pattern. For the first time, I started thinking it was skin cancer and I freaked out. I scraped it with a knife. It seemed waxy. And the dark spots seemed to be dried blood, as I was literally able to scrap the dark spots off. While in the process of doing this, I noticed that there was a "beebee" literally stuck on my back – seemed like hard fat or wax.
Avatar m tn I have read online about how uncommon it is for a circumsized male to get penile cancer. I also read that it could start with bluish brown flat spots on the head of the penis. What else could cause these spots? I attached a photo to see if you could tell by visual.
Avatar n tn Hormones and a history of unprotected excessive exposure to the sun may later on cause dark spots on the skin as one ages. Your dermatologist may be able to help you choose the right medications, products or therapy that may help lighten the spot. Avoid any further exposure to the sun. Use sunblock when going out and during prolonged sun exposure. I hope this helps.
