I have had this mole ever since I was young. It's right in the middle of my right cheek and makes me really self-conscious. I've never seen anything like it, it's slightly raised, pink (but when i get hot or aggravate the skin it raises a tiny bit more and the pink area turns bright red) and about the size of a pencil-eraser with a small dark spot on the right side of it. I can't stand it and I have been to the dermatologist who said he would run 3 check-ups to see if it changes in size etc..

Consider shave biopsy
I would recommend that you see your dermatologist for a biopsy to confirm whether or not it is benign. It is a very simple and quick procedure to do.
