I've had it for about a year, pretty much hasn't changed. Didn't give it much thought til my fiancé noticed and said that looks funny and said I need to get it checked. He tried to squeeze it and nothing happened except it got red and today it's dryish on top. I've had night sweats for the last 3 nights.

Doesn't hurt or itch.

Thanks for all these additional information.

I understand your concern.

I have reviewed your picture and I really want to assure you in first place that it's not a case of Melanoma in any way.

You shouldn't worry at all.

It's a benign mole and as he squeezed it so it get irritated and now it's dry due to irritation.

Now you should apply OTC 1% hydrocortisone cream mixed with Bacitracin ointment on it once a day for a week.

Avoid scratching,touching,squeezing.

If it's getting bigger,painful,itchy,discolored,irregular shape,texture,borders then it should be evaluated.

Otherwise it's benign( non cancerous).

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
