Hi Marvin,
 
There isn’t really a way to cancel an address. You just create a new one in your wallet and use that instead of the old one. In fact, it’s recommended to generate and use a new address for each transaction you receive as this is better for your privacy.
 
I’m not sure which wallet you’re using, but if you consult your wallet’s documentation on how to create a new receive address, you should find it to be a simple process.
