Lesion on the Stomach

Thank you for your question.  It is difficult to tell from the photo if it is a mole or something else.  I recommend for you to see a dermatologist to have an in person evaluation.  Since the lesion is new, changing, and is painful, I would recommend a biopsy.  I wish you the best!
