white spot

I've had a small white spot in my armpit since I was about 12 years old ( I am now 20). Over the years, it has only gotten very slightly larger (has gone from the size of nickel to a quarter). I've done full body examinations and there are no other spots like this on my body. Also, the hairs growing out of the spot are normal colored. Since it is so small, i never worried about it, but recently I've heard of Vitiligo, and I'm concerned. Does anyone think there is a chance I might have this disease? Or could it be caused by something else? Thanks...
