Does skin cancer itch?

I have this itchy growth on my face.


Answer by  Philedupwithknowlege (384)

Well to be honest a common symptom of skin cancer happens to be itching along with some sort of growth and possibly lesions. Don't panic though because there are other medical conditions with the very same symptoms such as benign growths that are less serious. In any case, I would check it out with my doctor just to be sure.

It is possible for skin cancer to itch. It is generally a growth on your body that doesn't heal for 4 weeks and may itch or scab.

Itchyness is not one of the cardinal symptoms of skin cancer. However, any concerning growth should be looked at by your doctor as skin cancer can be subtle or unusual.
