Brown and raised mole on hand. Something to be concerned about? Use tanning bed regularly

I woke up this morning with a new, small, brown, and sligthly raised mole (you can t tell it is raised unless you run your finger over it) on the side of my left hand . It is about 1/3 the size of a pencil erasure. Is this something to be concerned about. I am a 43 year old female who grew up in S. FLA and was a sun/ tanning bed worshiper.

Hi there,
It seems like you have to see the dermatologist so that he can have a look live,due to the sunny weather of the Florida and use of sun beds in someone having a white skin,one must be very vigilant regarding any new moles at anytime of their lives.
The sooner the better,it could be something benign but it could not be so better to check it up.I cannot comment any further because i haven't seen the mole,i hope you can understand my position.
thanks very much and all the best.
