Moles or nevus pigmentosus are formed from a collection of melanin-producing pigment cells (melanocyte cells) that grow in groups, which are seen as tiny brown spots or blackish protruding on the surface of the skin. Actually, the mole is not a disease and requires certain treatment, except if found the following things:
Asymmetrical shape of moles Irregular edges The color varies, especially if the middle part of the color is brighter than the edge area. The size is more than 6 millimeters. There is a change in shape, size and increase in the number of moles generally do not increase or increase in number after adulthood. If the size increases, thickening occurs or the number increases by more than 50 pieces, let alone accompanied by other things as mentioned above (asymmetrical mole shape, irregular edges, especially until the shape hangs like a growing flesh), it is necessary to be aware of the possibility that in fact The mole is an early stage of melanoma skin cancer, which at the beginning of its growth is difficult to distinguish from ordinary moles. In addition, other forms of skin tumors that can sometimes resemble moles are nodular-pigmented subtypes of basal cell carcinoma (formerly called basalioma) or squamous cell carcinoma.
Risk factors for these tumors include:
Skin types are classified as skin type (SPT) type 1-2 according to Fitzpatrick score (light colored skin). Based on this category, human skin is divided into types 1 to 6. Increased risk is inversely proportional to the order of skin prototypes (the smaller, the higher the risk) Exposure to excessive ultraviolet A and B rays. For example, excessive outdoor activities, especially at 11:00 to 15:00 local time, where exposure to sunlight is quite intense Lack of use of sunscreen or other protective clothing (for example covered clothing) The presence of genodermatosis diseases associated with skin tumors, such as Gorlin's syndrome or nevoid basal cell carcinoma syndrome (rare) and Xeroderma pigmentosum (also rare) Family history of skin tumors (mutations of certain inherited genes) Infection of certain oncogenic viruses, such as high-risk type human papilloma virus (rare in melanoma, more likely to be associated with squamous carcinoma Repeated exposure to carcinogens (cancer-causing agents) Chronic inflammation The first 3 forms above, together with genodermatosis Xeroderma pigmentosum, are associated with the type of skin tumors associated with sun-exposed skin cancers. Conversely, the other types are not always associated with sun exposure (non-sun-exposed skin cancers), although it can be a combination with sun exposure.
One sign to sort it out is to see whether the tumor growth is in an area that is often exposed to sunlight (H area, such as the face and surrounding areas) or not (L and M areas). In your condition, it seems that the skin lesion is not an area that is often exposed to sunlight (armpit or axillary area).
However, however, it is too soon to conclude that the meat you are experiencing is a skin tumor in this consultation room. It may be that you experience only a non-specific chronic inflammatory reaction, or other clinical conditions. Because the diagnosis of skin tumors must include clinical criteria (by a dermatologist) as well as anatomic pathology criteria (as a standard standard for diagnosing tumors based on ICD-O guidelines from the World Health Organization or WHO), and also radiological criteria, to detect the presence or absence of spread, both locally and in distant organs.
So, if you want to know for certain what really happens to the growing flesh that you are experiencing, you should see a dermatologist. Subsequent diagnosis and treatment, including skin biopsy to remove the mole, will be determined in accordance with the results of the dermatologist who is treating you. For the record, depending on the underlying disease, sometimes a joint care with a surgeon is needed.
Thus information from me, hopefully can help.
