Hi, welcome XXXXXXX and thanks for writing in.

A photograph attached would be of good use for possibilities.
Dark spot on leg may be a mole, which should be round or elevated lesion. If it is irregular in shape then it is matter to concern. In that case you need concern a dermatologist tor examination and opinion.
Pain in whole limb may be due to either radiculopathy or vascular . In lumbar disc prolapse there is significant pain radiating to lower limb. It may be associated with backache and tingling. At age of 55 there is possible chance of lumbar disc disease.
If there is tenderness in calf region with pain along whole limb then possibility of XXXXXXX vein thrombosis should be considered. It is usually associated with swelling of limb.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have further concern please let me know.
