My mole & the stitches came off its only been 2 weeks and its healing so well Im surprised. I cannot see any scar just a faint light pink fine line which Im told will vanish into lighter white over time, however Im a bit freaked out cause this morning I saw that at the end of the line its a tiny little bit raised, should I be worried? I have heard how people get keloiod or that raised scar thing they laser or put silicone sheets for? Am I getting too ahead of myself? hope it stays flat!

Looks like the area will heal nicely...
too soon to make any firm predictions but looks like a very nice job and at only 2 weeks you're ahead of the game...so relax and watch the area mature...if there's a bump in several weeks, it can easily be reduced...not a fan of the silicone sheets at this point...think they're hyped by some beyond what they deliver...
The area appears to be healing well. I would still give it more time to heal. It is important at this time to avoid sun exposure to the area as it heals.
