I've had a black spot on my gum for about 6 months and now it is getting a very small sore about the size of a pin head on it is it cancer?

In brief: Show it to a Dr

Any black spot that is changing in color or growing in size needs to be checked by a medical or a dental professional(in your case).
There is a small but real chance that it could turn into a melanoma, a type of Cancer. So get it checked...you may need a biopsy done if it is growing in size or dimensions.
