Hi ,
Thanks for writing in.
The condition you are suffering from can be keloid,acne keloidalis nuche etc.
Chances of it being skin cancer is very rare.
It would be good to get an biopsy of the lesion to rule out cancer formation.
A visit to cancer specialist or dermatologist will be helpful to take biopsy and subsequent treatment.

Hope this helps.
