It is important to know......
"from pathologist"

It is important to know your age, etc. I am worried that it may be a small skin cancer. You will have to consult a dermatologist and maybe have it excised or biopsied.

55, had skin cancer. The pain has moved deep in. Would
the surface skin still tell a pathologist if it was cancer?

Could it also be a "fluke" ?

I know, a slang term implying an event so rare that it is not
even worth considering.

Not the intestinal or urinary kind like we see here.

Maybe from exposure to raw pork? Carribean....Hawaii ?
I swear, it is as if this thing had hatched offspring which
radiated outward between the skin and bone of my forhead.
