Is a mark or pit left after pushing on malignant tumor normal?
It is possible.
Thanks for asking on HealthcareMagic.
Unfortunately the details are not enough to make a comment upon. A malignant tumor arises when there is uncontrolled cell division giving rise to a tumor. The tumor is usually not freely XXXXXXX but shows gradual progression in size (unless there is some intervention). The tumor can get attached to the skin and the pull can leave pits at the point of attachment (called Peau de orange - looking like an orange peel). There can be associated superficial edema which when pressed firmly with a finger may leave a pit on removal of the finger.
Loosely speaking thus, such a thing can occur in many types of malignat tumors but the pitting itself does not necessarily mean that there is some malignant tumor underlying.
