What does it mean to have a black blurry spot on my stomach? Is it cancerous? It itches from time to time but doesn't bother me otherwise.

I saw the spot in the photo.
It looks like vascular malformation like haemangioma.
Get a colour doppler examination of the swelling which gives correct diagnosis.
Then,you can get it removed and send for histopathological examination(Biopsy).
It is not cancerous now.
As it is itching,it may grow gradually and ulcerate.
So,it is better to get it removed.
It can be removed simply under outpatient basis.
If you come back with Biopsy report,I will clarify further.
Wish hour good health
