Brief Answer:
A number of causes

Detailed Answer:
Dear Ma'am, I have gone through your question and I understand your concerns but this could be due to a number of causes and I would like to see a picture of the dark spot.. However, this could be due to nicotine deposition if you are a smoker , or a benign condition of blood vessels such as hemangioma, or could be an early sign of malignant melanoma tumor. I would recommend that you follow up on its size and shape .. if it gets any bigger or becomes raised or bleeds or its border becomes irregular then seek medical attention as soon as possible . I hope you find this helpful
