Dark moles with various colors and irregular shape needs biopsy ASAP.

This definitely looks suspicious and should be biopsied  right away. Most moles that have dark irregular colors and shapes are suspicious. Sincerely, David Hansen,MD

Get your mole looked at and biopsied

Thank you for your question.

Yes, you should see a dermatologist soon to have your mole looked at and biopsied.  Make an appointment also for skin screening.

I hope this helps.

Mole bad?

From your picture you do need to have this biopsied by a dermatologist as soon as possible.  This could be a melanoma.  Consider going to AAD.org to find a dermatologist near you.
