Red Spot on Gums

I have had a small red spot on my upper front gum for more than one year.  It is not swollen and does not hurt and has not increased in size.  I floss and go to the dentist twice a year.  My gums and teeth are in good shape.  My last dental visit the hygienist noticed the spot and thought I had just jabbed myself by mistake, but when I got home I realized that I had had the spot for a long time.  I have had surface skin cancer on my lower lip and the top of my head.  Should I be concerned?  Should I see my regular dentist, an oral surgeon or dermatologist?

Seeing an oral surgeon is advised.
