Blister filled with blood. Cancer? Melanoma?

My husband has what looks like a blister filled with blood on his inner thigh. It fills up and bleeds . We put pressure on it and a bandaid. It fills up again and so on. Now there appears to be brusing near by it which to me indicates some bleeding. My concern is cancer . His father died from melanoma . So I am looking for pictures with diagnosis.

Hi Cyoung,

Thanks for writing in to Healthcare Magic!
One important thing is if it developed suddenly say overnight or after a strenuous activity it is unlikely to be cancer rather it is just a blood filled bruise and will subside in a week.
If it has been there for quite some time say over a week's duration and if aroused from a mole or he has similar lesion else where then he may be having a melanoma particularly in refence to strong family history and you must visit to a dermatologist as soon as possible.
It would be helpful for me to provide a stronger opinion if you could load a photograph in a follow up query.
If you have any further query please let me know I would try to answer it for you.

Wish you a great health!
