Brief Answer:
get removed

Detailed Answer:
Hi Sir,

Welcome to HealthcareMagic .

Having a mole is a normal phenomenon. Many have few and many may have more. Since in your cause it is quickly increasing in side with raised edges it goes more in favor of cancerous change as per me.

If any patient comes to me with such a complaint I advice them to get it removed surgically and send for histopathology (HPR)examination. HPR Is 100% diagnostic.

so I suggest its better to get it removed instead of waiting for it to grow as moles usually won't grow in size not even slowly at your age.

Hope I have answered your query . If any further queries are there I would love to help .
