In brief: Primary care is OK
You may end up at a dermatologist or plastic surgeon if your primary care doctor agrees that it is suspicious, but sometimes it can take some time to get into these specialists in some areas of the country.
By all means, show it to your primary care doctor as soon as possible and he or she can help you get to a specialist, if needed. Good luck!
