Lump on inner lower right arm. History of melanoma removal. What is this lump?

Hi Dr. My husband has a lump on his inner lower right arm , it is skin coloured and not painful. He has had it for about 6 months now. He has had a melanoma removed before (about 8 years ago) from behind his right leg, they removed a lot of tissue as it was quite wide spread. Please could you advise if the lump on his arm could be some sort of cancer again?

Welcome to HCM,

It precisely difficult to say without examining.

I advise you to consult your doctor and get FNAC or biopsy done to rule out any tumor, as your husband is at high risk of getting a tumor.
