ahh rust spot

While cleaning the car I was kind of shocked to see a small rust spot (a couple of millimeters wide) on the driver side door. Not sure if I should sand it and then touch it up. I really want to address it quickly so it doesn't get bigger and spread. Anyone know a place or shop that would be able to address it? I don't trust myself unless it's really easy to do. Thanks!

oh come on...not even worth sweating over...you can buy those "glass pens" at Canadian Tire which rubs the surface rust off and then use brake clean to clean it out. take your touch up and you're done. Most probably won't come back. Body shop is just going to take your money. :-)
