Thanks for writing in,

This could be a melanocytic nevus or a lentigo.

Quick appearance should not be ignored.
You must visit a dermatologist and get yourself appropriately checked.
A dermatoscopy is warranted to rule out anything sinister.

If dermatoscopy shows a benign lesion, then nothing has to be done other than 6 monthly check ups.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to ask me
