In brief: Depends
Moles are common and malignancy in moles is very uncommon.
Your doctor will examine the color, shape, height and character of a mole together with information about the length of time it is there, growth pattern, sun exposure, symptoms such as itching, pain, bleeding. He will then use his medical judgement of risks to determine if excision is warranted.
