I am 26 yrs old. I have got this spots out of nowhere. It was just 1 few days ago and now there are more than 15-20 of this spots and keep on appearing. Also they are appearing only on my right side of the body. Also the 2 spots on my palm and wrist is brown while the ones on hand is different color (i cant tell if its purple or light black) while the others on my chest and stomach area is dark black. Most of this spots are in different size and shape. They are flat and doesnt hurt and the first one on my hand has been there for more than 4 month while just recently since last week it is increasing and occuring in many different areas.
What is this. I am just worried if its cancer or not. I had a swollen lymph node on my front neck that last for 1 year last year and it just went away on its own just 3 months ago.
