Blood spot on finger
Hi, I'm a 25yr old female. I'm 5'2 and weigh 107lbs. A red flat blood spot came out of nowhere on my middle finger about two weeks ago. I know it's not melanoma because the spot is not growing and the shape of it is perfect around the edges. If there was someway I can give a picture of it here, I would. I don't feel any pain. It just looks like a a flat blood spot on my finger. I'm not sure what it is. I didn't burn my hand or do anything to cause trauma. I feel normal so that's why I didn't go to the doctors. It doesn't look a big concern. I might go now because it's been about two weeks and it's still there and I'm wondering what it is. If anyone has an idea please let me know. Thank you.
