Need to examine: It is not feasible to provide a meaningful opinion without additional history, physical examination and may be some tests. What you described is unlikely to be cancer. It would be prudent to consult your doctor at your next visit.
Wish you good health!

Lesion: A lesion that retracts in size is not a hallmark sign for a malignancy. But, we can't say what this lesion is without evaluation.
