Question Is this the end of the Panel Life?

We were given this Samsung TV 2-3 years ago. Worked well, but there were pale mauve and blue patches on the screen which weren't noticeable in normal viewing, more obvious on B/W programmes. Now today it's started showing a circular white patch on the screen. When the screen darkens, the patch darkens, so it's barely visible but is noticeable on a black or dark grey image. I'm thinking this means a new panel, which means a new TV. It's about 7-8 years old and is a UHD TV. It was installed whilst I was at work, so I don't know the model number. Any opinions will be greatly appreciated.
