Q.How Do I Know If This Spot On My Cantaloupe Is Rot, Disease, Fungus Or Just From Sitting On The Ground?

I tried to grow melons once but the deer killed them off. I do not normally buy them while as I am clueless as to what is good versus bad. I had a melon delivered that has a rather distinct brown spot that I am not sure is a problem or not. I figured if it was you would know as you grow them all the time. Do this photo represent a good or bad melon?

This appears to be just from sitting on the ground. This doesn't appear to be anything bad. Cutting into it will help you to determine whether this is the case, or not.
