Does this mole look ok?

Helllo! So I was talking to someone I work with who recently got a mole removed, and it got me wondering about one on my chest. When I was a kid it was a freckle and through my teens (and now my mid 20's) it did change. I noticed that it isn't all one uniform colour, it is slightly raised. Isn't crusty or scabby or anything. It had bled once or twice in the past and been itchy but literally one or two occasions a few years back so I wasn't worried. Does it look normal or is it worth getting checked out? The pics are really bad, I'll try and get some better ones.. it's awkward trying to photograph your chestblushgrin

Looks OK to me. But you're probably going to keep thinking about it, so if I were you I'd get a dermatologist to take a look to put your mind at ease.

Go to your GP. don't ask on the Internet. It needs properly reviewing. I referred a mole that was growing recently. Did not honestly think it was melanoma but I had a 6th sense about it which made me refer it urgently and it was so really I would see someone about it.
