Discoloration on lower thoracic upper abdominal skin area

I have a discoloration in the center if my lower chest area about 2 inches below my breasts. At first it started small and wasn’t hardly noticeable. Now it is a darker and lookalike it’s grown and is now a little over 2cm long. It isn’t very dark more like a yellow/light brown color. It doesn’t look like typical skin cancer “moles” I also don’t tan ever! I have only been sun burnt 2x in the last 6 years.

Hello and welcome

I appreciate your concern.

If it's a suspicious looking lesion with the colour , shape and size changes which you described ,a biopsy should be considered in consultation with your doctor.

Wishing you best of health
