Mole on genitals: It needs to be examined by your doctor, and possibly biopsied.

Need to examine: It is not feasible to render an opinion without examining the lesion, and even then it may not be definitive. You doctor may wish to remove it to have the lesion examined by a pathologist. If you have not done so, get a PAP smear and request the HPV test. The viral strains that cause genital warts are different from those that cause cervical cancer. Consult this site for info: http://www.cdc.gov/STD/HPV/STDFact-HPV.htm
