She asked the medical worker what to do if she tore off the birthmark, and also asked what it was threatening. I could not hear everything the nurse said, but among other things, she noticed that a damaged tumor can grow in size, and also become inflamed and even fester. According to the doctor, the worst scenario of all this is the emergence of a tumor called melanoma. This is nothing but skin cancer.
