New Tumor

This 81 yo woman with type II skin presented with a 9 mm papule on the left anterior neck that has been present for three weeks.

The lesion has a smooth glistening surface and a distinctive vascular pattern.

Although this may well be a basal cell carcinoma, it's appearance is atypical.  Perhaps, it is an adnexal tumor.

It was shave excised for diagnostic purposes.

Pathology should be back in ~ 5 days.
