Thanks for your question on Just Answer.
To help me give you a better answer is it possible for you to upload a photo of that area here? You can either attach the photo directly with your reply or use an external photo sharing site like www.imgur.com and paste the URL of the photo in your reply.
I don't understand why imgur.com would not work, simply enter imgur in Google and go to the first link you get. Or try any other photo sharing site. Any one would do.
Yes I have received the link and seen your photo.
I'm sorry but the lesion doesn't look so good. The colour has darkened considerably, and I can see a small pin point red ulcer near it's border. With your history, I have old advise a biopsy to rule out anything dangerous.
Best case scenario is it is just a melanotic macule, completely harmless.
Please see an Oral Surgeon ASAP for a biopsy.
Hope this answers your question. Feel free to contact me again for more information.

I'll be honest with you, yes, that is a possibility. But to speculate without a biopsy isn't advisable.
