Can you develop a melanoma from a blood blister?


Answer by  aeturnus (474)

Tumors constituting nodular melanoma can resemble a blood blister in both size and appearance, though melanoma itself is not the same as nor can be directly caused from a blood blister; if you notice a blood blister and suspect you might have melanoma, it is advisable that you see a doctor.

Melanoma is skin cancer. Cancer will not be caused by a blood blister. However, the skin color, texture, and irregular surface left by melanoma can increase the risk of bleeding. On occasion, melanoma can even affect the skin such that the cancer bleeds like a sore. If you suspect cancer, see a doctor.

Melanoma is a type of cancerous growth that affects skin tissue. It is caused by a wide variety of possible factors, but a blood blister is not one of them.


Answer by  eyeguy (3760)

no, a blood blister is a long way from a melanoma. the two situations are not related. Any melanoma is very serious and should be followed and treated aggressively. A melanoma can and should be treated with all available resources. A blood blister however is a simple pinch of the skin which will dissolve in time with no intervention
