No it does not look like skin cancer.
It is more like post insect bite or allergic lesion.

If it just appeared you should get it checked out for sure, it could be a form of cancer whether you have a family history of cancer or not. The most common is basal cell carcinoma, look around at some pictures but make an appointment with your physician because skin lesions should not just "appear" if they do then it could be something more serious.

I dont think it is, and I doubt it, but if you are scared go get it checked out asap, if it is skin cancer you are better off going now to get it fixed than when it is to late because you were scared..

Looks like a normal bruise to me. I don't think it's anything to worry about since you said there's no family history of cancer.
