A few months ago I got a bump on my upper inner thigh I dont remember if I squeezed it or it just popped but i did tell my mom about this and she told me not to worry about it too much so i didnt.

A few weeks ago it started growing and it was sore and I accidentally rubbed it too hard and it started bleeding, I applied alcohol and a cotton pad over it and it stopped bleeding but the black spot stayed there and just healed over it.

Im really scared that its cancer and I havent done anything about it. I now live on my own, i dont talk to my family, I only have 3 friends in this city (L.a) and I cant only afford to pay for my place and food, the rest i save so this is all very stressful for me on top of other things going on. I did however look for a clinic / office that offers free screening for cancer and will be going in the week after next.

Here are a few pictures, Theyre NOT *Graphic* its just a black spot, you can somewhat see a red border and you cant really see this but the black is broken up by other color. It is bumpy and looks smooth over the top. im sorry if its blurry i really dont have a better camera.
