welcome to healthcare magic,
it may be a nevus. simple nevus may occur anywhere in the body. it is not a cancer.dont worry for that. remember some sign that demands attention are as follows-
-rapidly increasing in size
-itching
-any bleeding from that
-colour change of the nevus
-pain or altered sensation
otherwise nevus is completely harmless.
