I have discovered a patchy brown spot on the side of my index finger. It has different shades of brown and is worrying me as I can not stop thinking about it since I first discovered it. It is about 3-4 or even 5mm wide. What are all the possiblitys and the most likely thing this could be? I am an 18 year old male and have become very stressed over this Sad Also if this is some form of cancer how can it be cured if it can? I hate using the 'C' word Sad

It can be due to over sun exposure. Sun radiates harmful UV radiations which causes many skin related problems. It can be one of them . Don't worry just see a dermatologist, he can guide you well and avoid going out in sun without a sunscreen.
