In brief: Mole assessment
Just get an appointment with a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon.
The rest will come after the assessment. Best to you.

Do a self examination frequently if you have multiple moles. Use sun protection. See a Dermatologist as soon as you notice any change in color, surface or bleeding and itching. Diagnosed early can be treated. Late diagnosis is not s good prognosis.

In brief: Suspicious moles
"the moles look unusual, clinically, and they have some features in common with melanoma, so they may get biopsied.
When they get biopsied, they may have some cytologic atypia, which is reported as mildly dysplastic, moderately dysplastic or severely dysplastic. This report may cause the dermatologist to re-excise the lesion to make sure that it is all gone.
