See Dermatologist.: Any skin blemish, spot, mark or growth that is noticeably getting larger should really be seen by a Dermatologist, just to make sure it's not something concerning.

Needs medical check: Depending on its color, it may be an infection or melanoma(if it is brown or black). You should seek medical check up for diagnosis and treatment. Such lesions can sometimes be dangerous to leave them alone. Goof luck
