Last year I was diagnosed with melanoma on the bottom of my toe. I remember burning that toe badly as a child. About a week ago I burnt my index finger on the oven and the skin turned white. Yesterday I found a brown spot within that white area. Knowing that cell mutations are part of the melanoma is it possible that a spot would appear this quickly after receiving a burn on the skin?

Very unlikley. Wait a month or two and see what the spot does, might disappear, if it grows or changes at all then get it checked out, but definitely wouldn't worry much about it being melanoma.
