Hi all,

I wanted to show a couple of photos of my skin. Ive been having severe skin problems for years and years. about 2 years ago ive noticed a considerable growth on my scalp. Alongside that i was already feeling intensly ill, with symptoms that are common with cancer (stiff neck, pain, extreme constipation, loss of appetite, weight loss, skin lesions, skin pain, folliculus and 3 skin fungal infections + a bacterial infection) The fungal plus bactgerial infections alone were not possible to have if i was not suffering from either aids or cancer, as ive been told by several doctors, though being clesr of aids and examined by an internist who concluded no signs of any desease i never got an explanation why i did have those infections.
3 months prior to my visit to the internist my blood did show a rapid decrease in both red and white bloodcells, extreme vitamine d defficiency and high production of anti histamines.
At that time i was given a course of itraconazole that ive taken several months and had been taken them for 3 months when i had my appointment with the internist.
Though i was still in pain. I complained about pain on the head, that i suspected there was a big lump on my head, painful skin, not healing wounds etc etc. The visits at the dermatoligst were kind of an joke to me. He took a skin biopt wich resulted in some kind of exzema he said. He told me i had skin thickening due to scratching, while ive states numberous times i havent been scratching that much because the spots mainly hurt. The skin biopt was from a spot that i did not agree too as it was not one of the spots i had severe discomfort at. And finally i got costeriod creme + some moisturiser, while i said that i have been using those already without results or worsening the problem.
In the end i was so tired of dealing with those doctors that ive been trying to get rid of my health problems myself. But as ive made some progress its beginning to become clear that i might not succeed on my own. Also if what i suspect is right then i have been walking around with this a LONG time.
The first time i visited my doctor with the growth on my scalp he asked me what i thought it was and i told him i thought it might be cancer. Thats the first thought i had when i noticed the growth on my scalp for the first time.
Anuyway ive have made some pictures and was hoping if anyone could tell if what im suspecting might be a possibility, as i dont want to visit the doctor again with only a vague suspission.
I would be very thankfull if a could have a second opinion.
btw i suspect a form of skin cancer that has also spread to the head and neck area.
thx in advance
