      I’m sure you get this alllllll the time.
      I’ve had this red bump for a couple years.
      Just in the last week it’s started like protruding out, burning, itching, and tingling. Very uncomfortable to touch. The skin around it is hard and red. I was just at the derm a year ago for a carcinoma on my back and she wasn’t worried about this, said it was a cherry angioma… but it didn’t look like this then.

          Many of us are on this forum because we waited to too long to get a spot checked out.
