Brownish spot on the elbow. Could this be due to spider bite?

I have a little brother who is a total health freak and we took a long stressful trip recently and for the past three days he s had a blackish brown spot that popped up above his right eyebrow, he also has a bad scorpion and spider problem where he s living at now... Can this be from stress or a spider bite?? He s concerned that it might be skin cancer

Hi there Will.

How old exactly is your little brother? Is there any strong family history of skin cancer?

Dermatology is a very visual line & as such, it is best to get a clear digital photograph of the lesion & upload it on this site using the upload data icon.

Alternatively, better to see a dermatologist @ ground 0 for best results as this may require a skin biopsy to decide one way or the other.

Based on your history alone, it is impossible to say if this is related to some sort of spider related injury & lesion therof.

Best of luck & hope it all pans out well..cheers!
