My worry

I noticed two red spots in my arm 2 days ago and went to see doctor today.
Doctor said those two dark red spots are insect bite and not cancer.
Problem is later today, I found new spot on my leg and now I really worried because spots are spreading.
I hope I don't have skin cancer.
I am going to make appointment to have blood test as soon as possible.
Can experienced skin specialist see difference between insect bite and skin cancer?
How can I tell what I have is not cancer but just insect bite?
