Black spot above ear loop. Grew bigger after eating lobster. Malignant?

Hi Doctor, I have a black spot (more like black and blue color) with the size of a bean just above my right ear loop. It s been there for two years. When I touch or squeeze it, I could fee the pain and notice the size would multiply. Two weeks ago after I ate some lobster meat, I notice the black spot sign grew larger. Based on my description and your subject expertise, is that malign or malignant? Thanking you. Winston

Hi, on your description i could suggest you that better you go for an excisional biopsy with suturing as by looking at it is it benign or malignant cannot be judged you need to confirm it under a microscope. hope you get it. take care
