Is a raised mole on chin a cause for concern?

I squeezed a facial mole on my chin and it has changed in diameter and become slightly scaly and sore to touch. Will this return to normal or do i need it checked out. Also i have a full facial beard for religious reasons will this affect disgnosis or recovery. Many thanks

1. Although mole are not very much important from medical point of view unless to diagnose a rare skin cancer (melanoma), you should not worry too much about the same.

2. If it is bothersome, kindly seek an opinion of a Medicine Doctor or consult a Dermatologist who may guide you for biopsy (if necessary) or will give symptomatic treatment considering your religion faith.
