Weird Scar

I've had this scar for a little while now. It's not grown in size,it's not bleeding, it doesn't hurt and it's not itchy at all. I think it's slowly shrinking and healing by itself but for a while I panicked about skincancer although after googling I doubt it's that but I am also wondering if it might be ringworm? The pictures are awful I'm sorry. i will see a dr on thursday just to be on the safe side but it's definitely slowly getting smaller.

What do you think? Normal scar or ringworm?

Looks like a mole to be. Best get it checked out though.

As in cancer mole or normal mole? The outer bits of it have healed properly so I hope the rest will too but will go to a doc on thursday

I don't know, I'm not a doctor. Has it just recently appeared?

I would go and get it checked out. Where is it and how long have you had it?
What was it- a mole, a spot, a graze originally? What caused it to start?
