A:   Hello,
Thanks for the query to ATD for an opinion,
The shape and size of this mole is a typical and definitely appears with irregular frayed margins with satellites. Irregular borders of a mole along with increased size is usually a feature of malignancy, especially what needs to be ruled out is a melanoma.
Hence, it is suggested that you should get a biopsy done at the dermatologist's office to rule out malignancy in form of melanoma. This is the best way to confirm or rule out any atypicality.
I hope I have been able to address your concern,
Wishing you good health,
Regards.
