Brief Answer:
Mole is looking normal, other is seborrhoeic keratosis:benign lesion

Detailed Answer:
Hi
Thanks for being at HealthcareMagic
I have reviewed the attached photographs and can appreciate two lesions.
One looks like a black colour mole which seems to be normal.
Other looks like a red to brown colour lesion which seems to be seborrhoeic keratosis which is a benign lesion of skin.
If the mole shows sudden increase in size, change in colour or shape, associated with itching, bleeding or oozing then you need to consult a doctor.
Otherwise no need to worry.
Regards
Dr Asmeet
