    Question What are skin cancer warning signs? is naevus?

    Hi,

    I have a black hairy nevus on my left hand.
    Its surface is smooth, its not ulcerated, not bleeding and not spreading.

    I am worried that can it be skin cancer ? or just warning sign of skin cancer?

    were you born with this nevus or has it developed in the last few years. has there been a change of color? most nevi are benign. the only way you can find out is to have a biopsy done on the spot. it is usually not cancerous but there is always concern if it has changed in anyway. have it checked out.
