I have had this mole thing on my head for a long time. But it use to be smaller and more of a circle. Noticed today it has enlarged and sticks out akwardly. Should I be worried ?????

If you have had the mole on your head for many years, it is unlikely that it is cancerous, but you should have it examined to be sure.  It would be a simple procedure to remove the mole if it is bothersome to you.
