    It could be that the liquid in the LCD is leaking out from that side.
    Try to apply pressure on that area and see if the black spot changes its size. This won't really help but it would give you a greater idea on what the problem is.
    Finally you can replace the screen with a new one.

    The crack might be from the side or front. You won't see it unless you remove that panel away from its housing. Doing this will introduce dust between the LCD and outer glass panel.

    Another possible culprit as mentioned by @NicEXE is that there's too much pressure on that LCD. Dissemble the 3DS to get to the backside of that screen. Adjust and relief the preload until the black spot goes away. If the spot doesn't disappear, it's definitely a crack somewhere... Possibly internal.

    Just a final question,what is the chance of it recovering by itself because it once happened earlier too and it disappeared by it own.

    If it's anything like what Irocg experienced from his findings:
    The mark can get smaller but never completely disappear. Further dropping or bumping your o3DS will increase breakage within the top LCD.
