single raised lump on forearm

Hi my name is Linda and i was wondering if a slightly raised wrinkled lump on my left forearm could be cancerous. I had basel cell carcinoma on my forehead nearly 5 years ago and im kind of worried. The lump on my arm is about a cm big (not itchy) and i can feel a small lump under the skin near it but no redness on that.

Hi Linda,
It is very rare for forehead basal carcinoma to spread to left forearm. Please do not worry about this possibility.
If this forearm lump has been there for a while, please consult a doctor.
All the best, and God Bless!
