Small skin part on thigh turning black, itchy, spreading slowly. Is this cancer?

Hello, I ve been having a small part of my skin turning black and is spreading slowly. It was small at first, but now it is getting larger and larger at a slow pace. I think it s been around half a year by now. It is on my thigh. It sometimes gets itchy. When I squeeze it, it is numbness. I am wondering, is this a type of cancer? And do you suppose I should go to my GP?

small part of skin getting blackish and increasing in size is a warning signs of cancer. do not neglect it. visit a dermatologist. excision biopsy is needed to clinch the diagnosis. anyway nothing to be worry about treatment is available for everything aim should be to detect it earlier. wish you a good health.
