Skin Cancer

Is it skin cancer?



I have a small sore on the side of my nose. It has been there for at least a month, maybe more. The thing that is worrying me is that it is not healing, but at the same time it is not growing. Could it be skin cancer?


Skin cancer may often present as a sore that does not not heal. I would recommend evaluation by your primary care physician or a dermatologist.
