i have this black thing on my upper chest . and it kinda looks like a black head . but it wont pop.i have had it for years. its the size of a blak head . should i get it checked out . can it be cancer .
By your description it seems to be a mole.If it is raised above the skin level then it is called compound mole ,and if it is flat then it is called junctional mole.
Any mole by itself is not cancer,so please don't worry.But if the mole is increasing in size ,or if it is causing itching or is bleeding form the site,then it is a cause of worry .
