Suspicious looking mole
Any time a mole is changing, it should be carefully evaluated. Please use the ABCDE's as your guide for when to be concerned about moles: A for Asymmetry; B for irregular Borders; C for black or uneven Colors; D for Diameter greater than a pencil eraser; and E for a growth that is Evolving or changing. If necessary, it is an extremely simple five minute procedure for a dermatologist to remove your mole using a "shave" biopsy technique which typically leaves a minimal scar. The mole can then be checked microscopically for reassurance.
Thank you for your question. In my opinion, any changing lesions on the skin should be evaluated by a dermatologist, who can look at the growths with an instrument called a dermatoscope. This scope allows the physician to look at the lesion under higher magnification for any abnormalities, and if any are present, then a biopsy should be performed. I highly recommend you consult with a board certified dermatologist for a full body skin check. Take care and good luck.
