Question Question about Scar/Mole

I have a weird question for anyone that can help! When I was little I had a small mole on my cheek. When I started breaking out a lot i noticed that it wasn't as noticable as the brown part disappeared. It was like the mole turned into a scar because of the acne that was there. I sometimes occasionally still get a pimple in that spot. Now that I am almost clear I have a weird scar that has a bump under the skin. I don't know what it is-a raised scar, or a small cyst or pimple that won't go away, or maybe the mole is still under my skin?

At first my derm thought it was a scar and treated it with lasers. When I told him that I used to have a mole there he said that next time I come back he'll look at it and that maybe I need to get a biopsy (a biopsy is where they cut out a mole and then sew the skin with stiches)

I was wondering if anyone has something like this. It is frustrating because the that spot is sooooooo noticable and I feel everyone staring at it when I talk to them!!!! I just want it to be gone or at least less noticable. It makes me self-conscious that sometimes I don't even want to talk to anybody!!

If anyone has adice that would be great. Also has anyone had a biopsy and did itleave a scar? I hope this makes sense.
