Black spot on body

9442567?1378044342
I recently noticed a black dot on the side of my body. I have a picture of it. Is it possibly skin cancer?

Hello,
Before labeling it as cancer, this can be a cyst as well. If you notice changes in its color, height, size or shape, you should have a dermatologist evaluate it. You also should have it checked if it bleeds, oozes, itches, appear scaly, or become tender or painful.
It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing.
