SKIN CANCER
Hi Doc,

I had a patch of dry skin (scab) on my cheek bone. The scab is no more but its now looking like its changing and its bigger, maybe the size of 3 match stick heads. Almost like a shiny patch reddish in colour. I had the dry patch of skin for as long as I can remember but it's changing now. I'm 41 years old.... can I send a picture?
