Thanks for the query and photograph.
That spot is not looking like cancer,
It appears to me like a furuncle.

I would like to know since when you have this spot ?
Do you have any pain or itch ?
How fast is the lesion growing ?

kindly reply to the above questions, so I can help you better.

Thank you
