Pediatrician 's  Response
hi,
thank you for your query on health care magic
i dont think it is cancer
this is a depigmented patch
please find if you have such white marks any where in the body
most probably it may be a case of leukoderma
better consult dermotologist if there are more white patches over the body
otherwise you may take some vitamin B complex tablets for a month and see
as they may be caused by vitamin deficiency also
hope this answer will serve your purpose
take care
