It's difficult, if not impossible, to determine if some one has skin cancer by a description over the internet. My advice to you would be that, since you seem concerned about this, make an appointment with your doctor and have it checked out. Really, something can sound totally innocuous in description and be melanoma. Likewise, something can sound like it's spot on skin cancer and simply be a mole. Unless it's checked visually (and sometimes with a biopsy), it's almost impossible to say.
