I noticed a red freckle type mark on my forehead last year - about 7mmx5mm. It's now a 'dent' and slightly bigger. It's right by my hairline. Saw my GP who is famously dismissive and he said it's nothing but it worries me a bit.
Oh wow, I have the exact same thing. 2 of them on both sides of my forehead. Sorry, have no idea what it is but I'm glad someone else has it so I don't feel like a crazy person talking about the dent in my head. Dh just gave me a face like this Hopefully someone else will know what causes it.
I have one on my cheek which has been there for years but has started to worry me lately. I'm thinking of having a whole body check as I have a lot of moles etc but I'm scared about opening a giant can of worms.
I have exactly the same. Was a tiny red spot, first noticed it six years ago. It's been a dent for the last three or so years. At first I thought basal cell carcinoma but it hasn't changed in any way. I keep an eye on it though.
I've had mine years . But as I always associated skin cancers with moles the thought never crossed my mind until Hugh Jackman brought it into the limelight . Now I'm really worried. I'm sure I can feel a sort of long lump under the skin too. Argh i look at it every time I walk past a mirror. Not sure if I'm imagining it but keep thinking it's more indented than it used to be. Hate to panic everyone ( including myself) but I think we should maybe all go get them checked out .
I had a basal cell years ago which looked like this and became an indent over time. It's the skin cancer Hugh jackman gets a lot. Its very easily dealt with and not serious, but it needs sorting nevertheless.
