Impossible to say: You need to have someone take a look at it to know for sure. Abcde gives a good rule of thumb for skin lesions. A=asymmetry. If a lesion is asymmetrical, it is more worrisome. B=borders. The borders of a lesion should be sharp. Fuzzy edges = more worrisome. C=color (should be uniform). D=diameter (should be less than 5 mm in diameter). E=enlarging. More concerning if it's getting bigger.
