Basal Cell Carcinoma?
I am asian and I am 23 yrs old, sometime on late 2011 I had a pimple in my chest and I poped it and became a lumpy scar, the scar wont go away until now and it feels like its growing. I am not sure if it was a pimple back then but it looked like one.

here are the pictures of the lump.

I searched the internet and it kind of looks like basal cell carcinoma =(

please help me identify it =(

It kind of looks like cellulitis to me, which is a sort of a superficial infection.  I think you need to get treatment for it by a doctor, so don't delay the appointment.  Even if it is basal cell, the area will just need to be excised.  It will leave a mild scar that will eventually show less than what you have now.  Just take care of it before it gets biger.  No big deal.  These things come up.
