Hi, I suddenly (my husband saw it this morning and said it wasn t there the day before) developed a skin lesion on my back, oval, maybe larger than a quarter. It s slightly brownish in the center with a light pink ring around the outside. I have no other symptoms. It doesn t itch or anything but looks alarming.
