In brief: Yes, but

Skin cancer can occur at any site, it is more common in sun exposed areas.
What you described does not fit with skin cancer. If the lesions persist for more than two weeks, you should consult your doctor to avoid getting the lesions infected.

In brief: Yes

Although skin cancer is far more common in areas exposed to the sun, you can get skin cancer in areas that are not sun exposed.
If there are several bumps clustered together, skin cancer is less likely the cause of what you are describing.
