Dark patch on lower penis shaft

I have a dark, so very slightly raised, brownish mark in color at the very bottom of my penis shaft.  I noticed it several months ago and it seems to have gotton slightly bigger.  I've been touching it and now it seems to hurt a bit when touched.  It's probably half the size of my pinky fingernail and not exactly round.  What should I be looking for next?  And would there be any other symtoms if this was cancer?

I don't know if its cancer, but this is the STD forum.

You should get this checked out promptly, and maybe posting in the dermatology or men's health forum would help.
