Dark spot: The hyperpigmentation after a pimple isn't a scar. It needs to fade on its own, which can take months. Don't mess with is -- skin bleaches are more likely to make a mess. I also see that you are on metformin for PCOS; your history of "breast cancer" is unusual in a 29 year old and perhaps you can discuss exactly what any biopsy or imaging showed with your own physician. Best wishes.
