Can a mole grow back different?

So I got my mole removed recently like 2 moths ago but it grew back different. The mole grew back a bit bigger and there are smaller moles around it that I have never seen before. Should I be concerned about this?

A mole can grow back for a few reasons. So, if the spot looks different than you expected I would recommend you go back to your dermatologist for an exam. Any time a spot changes or evolves, it needs to be examined by a professional.
