I noticed small spot grew on my hand since last winter. I dont think its growing (at least not significantly) and its diameter is ~1/8 inch. It is pink, flash-like with a red spot on the top. It does not hurt but it is weird that it happened and it last for so long. Recently I was reading about skin cancer ->
Basal-cell carcinoma -
Welcome to the ehealthforum and I am glad to help you out.
From your symptoms it can be a small wart or a pyogenic granuloma. It does not look like a basal cell carcinoma but to confirm the diagnosis, it is best to get a biopsy skin done. Warts are tumours or growths of the skin caused by infection with Human Papillomavirus (HPV).
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
