No, just Redish/Purplish coloration to the specific area where the hickey is because the blood is concentrated there.

There is some belief that injuries such as hickies in the same spot over time may cause inflamation - some schools of thoughts amongst medical researchers suggest that cancer can start from inflamed tissue-that is repeatedly injuried inflamed tissue. however, at this stage this is only a theory, one of many, postulated amongst scienctists.

Remeber a hickie is the result of a deliberate injury. If you do not believe that regular injuries in the same place cause problems - check out the literature on football players and the dramatically higher than normal incidence of bone and or cartlidge caner in spots where they took regular knocks over time playing the game.
