Hello,
Depending on the type of skin cancer, symptoms are different. In basal cell carcinoma, there appears a pearly or waxy bump or a flat, flesh-colored or brown scar-like lesion. Squamous cell carcinoma appears as firm, red nodule or a flat lesion with a scaly, crusted surface. Melanoma has an irregular border, is asymmetrical, uneven color and increasing in size. If you notice changes in the mole's color, height, size or shape, you should have a dermatologist evaluate it.

It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
