In brief: See below
Why have you waited so long? You need to go to a dentist and get this looked at.

In brief: Could be.
Weird spots and scabs on the sun exposed areas of the face that hang around for months should always be checked out by a doctor because we worry about skin cancer.
Inside the mouth, i like to say that if you have an ulcer/lesion that hangs our for more than 2 weeks, it should also get checked out by a doctor, especially if you smoke! harmless things like canker sores go away by then. Cheers!

Oral cancer can be part of the possible diagnosis.
See a dentist asap to make sure it is nothing serious.

In brief: Needs to be checked
It can and should be checked, possibly with a special light or by biopsy.
The only way to know for sure is under a microscope.
