When it comes to certain cancer symptoms, they can resemble symptoms of conditions that are not as serious. This is why if a person thinks they are having symptoms that resemble cancer, they should get it checked out. An example of two conditions that have similar symptoms is Blood blisters and Melanoma. Blood blisters and melanoma can lead to raised parts of the skin that are filled with blood.
The difference between them is that melanoma forms out of blood cancer, whereas blood blisters form due to the skin being pinched together. Blood blisters can be treated with ice or natural gels, while cancer needs to be treated through drugs, therapy, or surgery.
There are instances when people can become confused with a blood blister and a melanoma because they somehow look the same. A blood blister will usually look like a small round lump that you can find on your skin.
The nodular melanoma will look the same. One difference is that the nodular melanoma will have a higher chance of spreading. There is no point in trying to pop these two, especially the nodular melanoma, because there will be no pus inside.
If you would try to break it open, you would only cause your skin to have a wound. You may also cause the nodular melanoma to spread further on other parts of your skin.
