I would recommend that you follow-up with your physician who treated you.  It may be that more time is needed for it to go down.

Bump after mole removal

+1

First of all, it should be fine for you to lift weights again at two weeks after your mole removal.  As far as the bump goes, it appears that it is some swelling from your surgery and not part of the mole.  I would keep an eye on it for now but you should follow up with your surgeon.  If it does not go down with more time, it's possible that it could be corrected with a minor surgical procedure.
