In brief: No.
Skin care products do not contain agents known to cause cancer.
Biggest risk is sun exposure.

In brief: Skin Cancer subtypes
Skin cancer falls into two categories - melanoma and non-melanoma skin cancers.
Depending on the type - some just appear to grow and change and not look like nay other skin lesion that you have on your body. Sometimes they also bleed. Your best bet is to be evaluated by a dermatologist if you are concerned about the possibility of having a skin cancer. http://www.mohspros.com/library/3909/skinc.
