Odd spot on hand. Could it be skin cancer?

I had what I thought was a pimple come up on the back of my hand about a week ago. Thought it was a strange place to get a spot but vaguely assumed it might have been an insect bite or something similar and didn't think any more of it. But it's still there, and has changed shape into a raised but flat, reddy pink spongey blob with a dark red edge and a teeny dark dot right in the centre.

I'm off to the doctors to get it checked out but has anyone got experience of this sort of thing?

Thanks Footle. Thankfully it's nothing of concern apparently, maybe an odd bite which is taking time to heal or something similar- It does look to be going down now so I am grateful of that!
