Hello and thank you for your question. It’s my first priority and pleasure to help you.

I understand your concern.

As per your description,if it's getting bigger in size,irregular border and shape,blackish,raised,discolored mole then it should be evaluated to be a cancerous.

In case it's smooth,same size,round and regular borders then it's simple benign mole.

And there is nothing to worry.

Feel free for further queries. It's good to discuss rather than quit.

Expert:  Onlinedoc replied 7 months ago.

Painful mole can be caused due to friction to it.

You can apply OTC 1% hydrocortisone cream and Polysporin ointment for 5 days.

Also take OTC Advil.

Wear loose fitted garments.

Can you please upload picture?

I want to see it to determine it's nature.

Thanks.

I have reviewed your pictures and it's big in size and raised.

At present it can be raised due to friction.

You should such self care remedies for a week.

Other possible cause may include Seborrheic keratosis.

However if it oozes or bleeding and itching,tender to touch even after then see a dermatologist for further evaluation.
