Needs biopsy: An enlarging mole should be addressed by excisional biopsy. See your dermatologist or plastic surgeon to have it addressed. The obvious concern is a change or dysplasia in a mole which can lead to melanoma.

It means that you : Need to see the dermatologist. I recommend that my patients have a head to toe dermatology examination every year. The dermatologist can determine if you need a biopsy ; if the lesion looks suspicious or not.
