1 month post op of Mole Removal, my mole grew back after excision and stitches. What treatment do I need? (photo)

I had a mole on my back removed about a month ago. It was "abnormally big and discoloured" hence the reason it was to be removed, just in case. It was cut out and I was givin 4 stitches and was told I would be contacted if there was anything to be worried about. I got it removed april 13th, 2014 and it is now may 14th, 2014 and the mole is growing back.

You need to know what the pathology report is?
The mole returned because some of the pigment was left behind. Need re-excision
