Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!
I read your question and I understand your concern.
Its hyperpigmented patch. It does not seem dangerous because its borders are well defined and regular. Its on sun exposed and trauma prone area. Anyhow, just closely observe its size,borders,consistency and color.
I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
