How likely is an unstable lentigo to turn into lentigo

How likely is an unstable lentigo to turn into lentigo maligna?
Customer: replied 12 days ago.
Went to scheduled appointment and after the consultant having a good look at lesion again with dermatoscope he decided to not do further biopsies but to schedule a follow up at 6months. I forgot to ask how likely is this going to progress to lentigo maligna and if its safer to have it excised although I would need a facal skin graft.
