I actually scratched it and it flaked off in a few pieces. Under it is a little pink open wound spot now. Is this ok???? Could you flake off a cancer!

It looked just like a small freckle. And I easily picked it off. But now I'm worried I picked off a cancer and it will re grow worse?
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Here are two others. Thank you for your opinion here.
Are these concerning?
