    Hi,

    This is a mole on a fair skin person, growing beyond skin surface with rough surface. Mole can convert into a malignant condition if it is rapidly growing, or painful. An immediate excision and biopsy are indicated here. Please consult your doctor as soon as possible.

    Agree with Dr. Mohan. It is better to get it biopsied by a dermatologist or primary care doctor as soon as possible.
