Skin cancer?

Shoulder lumps don’t know what they are

My doctor tells me that these are keloids but they keep popping up and won’t go away. Anyone have any ideas on what it could be? Not sure if I should leave this alone or not...

Don’t waste your time with a primary doctor or a dermatologist- make an appt with the true experts on skin cancer which happens to be a plastic surgeon. I would NEVER have skin cancer surgically removed by anyone else. Why, you ask? Because the other docs are not adequately and extensively trained to remove skin cancer- particularly melanoma-without unintentionally spreading the disease. With melanoma, that could mean life or death.

If they go away, that's not how cancer works.  Cancer never stops unless you or your doctor stops it.  Does it itch, especially in warm water ? 

Does it bleed off and on especially when sweating or working out ?  You could be eating the wrong foods or you're allergic to something ?  You'll have to go to a Dermatologist to be sure and then take it from there.
