If I have a scar (from a burn) on my arm, what are the chances of me getting skin cancer?

The chances of getting skin cancer are minimal but if a long standing stable scar starts showing activity e.g. Changes in the margins, growth inside the scar, bleeding, pain, change in colour/ texture , it has to examined by registered dermatologist at the earliest. Confirmation of the diagnosis can only be done by a biopsy.
