Hi, Welcome to HCM, I am Dr. Das
I dont know what you are thinking about? Researching online can not cure your condition or diagnose what you really have. And one more thing, it is impossible for anyone to give opinion in this case without examining the lesion properly.
Just go to a Doctor and do a thorough examination.
