Melanoma-type spot

My dog (11) has a strange scab / spot on his side. It looks sort of melanoma-like and the hair on the spot has fallen out and no longer grows there. It doesn' t seem to bother him - he lets me touch it without squirming or trying to move away. Any ideas?

If in your opinion it looks melanoma-like, why haven' t you been to the vet?

It could of course also be ringworm, in which case touching it might not be the best idea....
