Is this a mole? (photo)

Lesion on the foot
Thank you for your question. It looks like blood under the skin which is called talon noir. It is often caused by trauma. However, I can't completely rule out a new mole and would need to look at it with a dermatoscope to be more certain. If the lesion does not resolve or if it enlarges I recommend for you to see a dermatologist. I wish you the best!
