In brief: Skin cancer!

Until proven otherwise any wound which won't heal within a week or two is very suspicious for a skin cancer.
Especially if it is enlarging with time, get it checked out asap.

In brief: Could be serious

Wounds that don't heal for a long period need to be checked.
You should see your primary care doctor or dermatologist soon. This frequently turns out to be a skin cancer which is very curable.

In brief: See your doctor

Skin lesions that don't heal are always a concern for a form of skin cancer (basal cell or squamous cell carcinoma).
See your family doctor or dermatologist as soon as possible to confirm a diagnosis.
