No, but it sounds like a cancerous tumor to me. Your best bet is the see the vet! (Hey, that rhymed!)

It's hard to tell wether things are cancer or just a benign mass.the best thing to do is have your Vet take a look at it and see what he/she has to say.It's best to have it looked at before it gets to big so that the Vet can get it off before spreading. Haus has a simialar pimple like thing on his back but it is nothing to worry about.it has been there for 8 years and has never grown,bled or looked any different so I just leave it alone. But check with your Vet ASAP

Most lumps are benign, but there is a chance they can be serious, and all bumps should be evaluated by a vet.

How black is it? I ask because even a dark pink, dark brown or black lump can actually be a tick.
