Brief Answer:
Looks benign

Detailed Answer:
Hello Sir,

Thank you for the picture.

I find the mole is lighter and do not seem to be deep penetrated. However anything can be confirmed only with a biopsy and histopathology report.

More than the external appearance I would be concerned if there is a recent change in the nature of mole, like its size, color, expanding borders, bleeding, or injury to it.

Let me know if you noticed any of the characteristics.
