Skin Care and Diseases

Tanning bed



I went to a tanning salon couple yrs ago. I have fair skin. After tanning, for about 10 minutes, I have noticed a small red spot just below the sternum. It looks like a birth mark. Over the past 2 yrs. the red spot has gotten bigger! It doesn`t inch, hurt or anything. Should I have someone look at it? Its not cancerous is it???? Thank you


You should see a board certified dermatologist for this.
