If you notice any change in size or itching you should have it checked for melanoma also it’s current size is concerning, I recommend you see a dermatologist, it can be simple Dysplastic nevi but better check it

This depends on whether it is old or you just noticed it recently..is it congenital or acquired..anyway it can ba dangerous if it experienced.
A change in size (getting larger)
A change in shape (especially with irregular edges)
A change in color (especially getting darker or exhibiting multiple shades)
A loss of symmetry
Itchiness, pain or bleeding (maybe even forming a scab)
Crustiness
Inflammation
Exhibiting three different shades of brown or black
It is atypical dysplastic mostly if it is benign..I recommend checking it with a dermatologist.

No worries

Only suspect something wrong if you found the ABCDE mole rule u ll need to investigate at that time

A = Asymmetry
One half is unlike the other half.

B = Border
An irregular, scalloped or poorly defined border.

C = Color
Is varied from one area to another; has shades of tan, brown or black, or is sometimes white, red, or blue.

D = Diameter
Melanomas are usually greater than 6mm (the size of a pencil eraser) when diagnosed, but they can be smaller.

E = Evolving
A mole or skin lesion that looks different from the rest or is changing in size, shape or color.
