What causes black spot on upper eyelid?

I have a small black spot on my upper eyelid. Before I noticed it was there, whenever I'd rub my eyes I noticed that the same eye with the spot on the eyelid would feel extra tender and would water. This is abnormal from what I'm used to experiencing. I do not use glasses nor contact lenses.

it may be a melanoma. do not rub or disturb it. just watch it for its size or surface is raised then consult doctor. otherwise leave it like that.
