Hi and welcome to HCM.
It doesnt sounds like cancer ,it sounds like dermatologic disease such as psoriasis, allergic or autoimmune dermatitis or many other. Cancer should always be ruled out of course so I suggest to visit dematologist and do skin biopsy. Second cause can be clotting disorder which causes subcutaneous haematoma which can spread on this way. WIsh you good health.
