Purple/Blackish Growth on upper thigh

Good evening everybody.
I'm new to the board, but wanted some feed back on a condition that is sort of concerning me. I have recently discovered a small growth on my upper right thigh, and I'm concerned it could be a sign of cancer. It started as a small redish bump that I didn't think twice about. Shortly after, the bump grew larger about to the size it would be considered a small growth and changed from red, to a dark purle, almost black color. I'm hoping it's just a bengin cyst, but I can not seem to find any information pin pointing the exact symptons. I have no pain or discomfort from the growth. I have scheduled a vist with my PCP to discuss the issue, but just wanted some feedback so I can know what to expect when I do vist. Any suggestions as to what this could be?
