What causes black lumpy spot in the heel?

I am 37 years old, 6 4, and weigh 220 pounds. I have been experiencing pain in my left heel for about a month. Today, i decided to look at it. When i did, I saw a black, lumpy spot. It does not hurt to touch, but is painful when I press directly on it. What could it be?

Hi.
Thanks for your query.
Since it is more than a month that you are having heel pain on left side, and there is a black spot this can be a serious and dangerous problem called malignant melanoma.
Check for inguinal lymph nodes.
Consult an Onco-surgeon to have clinical evaluation , confirmation whether this is malignant melanoma or just a hematoma and get treated accordingly.
