Hello and welcome to ehealth forum I have read your question and would like to help you.

The lesion in the uploaded picture looks more like an ulcer and seems benign.
The only definitive way to rule out cancer is a biopsy.
Consultant your primary physician so that he checks it out and guides you further after detailed history and examination

Hope it helps
Good luck
Dr Khalil
