A 55-year-old male presented with an asymptomatic nodule on the chest for the last six years. It started as a pink-colored papule that gradually grew to the present size tumor, in two years. Subsequently the size of the tumor remained almost static. The tumor used to bleed a little, occasionally. There was no history of pruritus or pain in the tumor. No previous history of trauma to the area could be elicited. His medical and family history was noncontributory. Cutaneous examination revealed a 3.5 x 2.8 x 1.6 cm, well-circumscribed, brown-colored, sessile tumor on the sternum manubrium [Figure - 1]. The surface was rough with reddish-brown crusts and erosions at places. The tumor was firm, nontender, and did not bleed when touched. There was no regional lymphandenopathy. The histopathological findings are shown in [Figure - 2].
