Re: New Raised Mole? Beauty Mark?
There is a difference between a new mole (which can be raised or flat) and a mole that has suddenly changed. I had a new mole pop up about a year and a half ago and it was raised. It was sort of a pinkish/brownish color. I went to a derm and he was unconcerned about that one but found 2 others that he wanted to remove and biopsy. They turned out to have abnormal properties but were benign so, no biggie. So, my suggestion is to go see a derm...as you should get used to doing once a year anyway just to be safe. He will likely find nothing wrong with your mole...unless you can remember that it was there before and has suddenly changed. Moles should not change in size or shape but, they can be different in that one may be raised while others are flat.
Is it an irregular shape, multi-colored? Those are something to possibly be concerned about. Otherwise, the simple fact that it is raised should not sound an alarm just yet. Does it hurt, bleed or itch? Those are other mole properties to be concerned with.
Take care and keep in touch!
