Depends

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome.

If you talk about melanoma tumor, most important signal are detection of mole changing, irregular borders, asymmetry and change of color. If we talk about other skin tumors then any lesion that bleeds easily or grows fast, should be suspicious.

Wish you good health.
