I have had a mole located on my upper back in the shoulder blade area. About a week ago it became puffy and started to itch?

Now the area of the mole is raised about 3/16 and is circled with a thin red line. The area in question is about the size of a pencil eraser tip.

moles can be removed in the office but I suggest you see an expert for a consultation to determine what is best.  Dr. Emer.
