Mole on boyfriend's back?

About 3 years ago, I noticed a mole that fit the descriptions of melanoma, i told him to get it checked, he didn't listen. So finally, last year, we went to a clinic and the nurse practitioner looked at it and said it had some characteristics but its probably nothing, but we should get it looked at anyways.
The reason she said that was because my boyfriend's mom said that mole has been like that all his life. but I'm still worried.
Its raised and dark in the center, a perfect circle and spreads out, like a butterfly. It is not perfectly symmetric like a butterfly, but is almost symmetric.
I'm just so worried... I'm think it'll be another month before we get all the insurance stuff done and to get it biopsied...
