Q
Black marks on my hands

I have been getting these black marks on my hands, legs. Every time it itches it gets bigger. I have had it for over a year and I am worried it could be melanoma.

Many conditions can cause pigmented marks on the skin. Without checking the skin and taking a skin biopsy its difficult to make a diagnosis. It would be best to see your doctor to assess the skin.
