appearance of red discoloration (like a birthmark) on chest?
hey I think i've had this for about a year, right in the middle of my chest but it definitely wasn't there before i just checked a picture from 2-3 years ago and it wasn't there

its just this patch of red discoloration and it reacts like a birthmark, if i apply pressure to it it gets whiter.  what is it? why did it appear?  could it be dangerous? will it go away?

pic attached

I would get that checked by a dermatologist to make sure it's not a basal cell or squamous cell cancer.  Those spread slowly and pretty much stay in the skin.  They are no big deal if you get them taken care of, so go do it.
