It is difficult to say without clinical examination. Many a time there are some fungal infection with similar features. You should not worry at all. Dark patch not only be due to cancer.There are other possibilities too. Do not get nervous . Have a gynaecologist's appointment. He/she can guide you better. Nothing to think about cancer right now. There are more common diagnosis to be ruled out first.
