Red shiny spot on chest. Growing in size, no itching. Mole next to the spot. What could it be?

I have a red shiny spot on my chest . Ive been looking at it for about a year but I think its time to have it checked. It doesn t itch and it doesn t bleed or anything like that. but its gotten bigger. Ive made an appointment to go see my doctor on Wednesday but I was wondering if you could ease my mind with your expertise. I have noticed that there is a little mole right next to the spot.

Dermatologist 's  Response are on the right track..any new growth ,any change in an existing growth should always be evaluated.A biopsy in most cases helps giving an indepth picture and helps you to follow up the course if need be.In many cases ,it might be a vascular malformation,which is benign,however as mentioned ,a detailed HPE is the golden rule.In case it is a benign small growth, you can undergo certain electrosurgery to get rid of it the same day!
