Thanks for the query.

It would have been better if you had provided detailed information such as
- Duration and progression;
- Associated symptoms (itching, swelling, soreness, etc);
- Whether or not the spots blanches on pressure;
- Any medicines used; and
- Similar spots elsewhere.

Red spots are not ominous signs. It can accompany many medical conditions such as localised inflammation, infection, insect bites, drug eruptions, capillary leakages, etc. They do not absolutely indicate a cancer. Therefore your worry about cancer is unwanted.

So worry not about cancers. Your reply can help me plan steps of action.

Awaiting your response...
