Possible Skin Cancer?

Hey all. I would like to start my first post by saying I do tan in a tanning bed. I've been doing it for about a year. I noticed a small circle on the bottom of my elbow maybe a month ago but I thought it was a bruise or something and forgot about it. Now I noticed it again while doing pull ups in a mirror and I begin to grow nervous. It doesn't hurt but it feels slightly dry when I run my finger over it. I will go to the doctor but what do you thinK?

P.S. Please don't tell me tanning beds are terrible. I know that and I won't do it again, but it is done and I can't change the past.
