I have a small bump on my hand that I cannot really tell what it is.
I have spotted it some 2 weeks ago and it didn't change since then (although it went from 0 to that size in some 3 weeks). It's about 3-4mm in diameter, colorless (or slightly different shade), slightly raised (some 0.1-0.3mm), thick when I touch. It doesn't itch, hurt, bleed or anything like that. On the surface it feels smooth, smoother than my normal skin actually. Oval shape.
To give you some background, I have been fighting/freezing off HPV warts on my hands for the past few months - myself, using a product from pharmacy. After freezing, the skin is damaged and blisters form (which I rupture so they become wounds). One day, I didn't really think it through and exposed myself - and the damaged skin to sun on a very hot summer day - it was late August this year. Some 3 weeks after that I noticed the bump, near where the wound was - but it's important to note that it was not exactly on the same spot as the wound - it's more like at the edge of where the wound used to be. The wounds have healed completely - and I can compare only because I took a picture of my hand when the wounds were fresh.
I don't think it's a wart. The area was 100% clean, and the lump grew out of a sudden in just 2 - 3 weeks. I also never had a wart that big on my hand, and most new warts I have are tiny and/or are growing very very slowly. I also don't think it's a scar from the freezing - as I mentioned earlier - the lump grew next to where the wound were.
Here are the pictures.
One of the pictures is from August - showing the wounds and the area where the bump later grown. As I outlined, the bump grew near to where one of the wounds was - not on top of it.
Could it be actinic keratosis? Or some skin cancer? I will schedule a visit to the doctor as fast as possible, but I would very much appreciate your thoughts on this so I can do some more research before the visit.
