Should I be concerned about this mole? Pics

So this mole has got my partner concerned. It doesnt hurt or itch or anything but it has become raised and it used to be all one colour. I dont know over what period if time this has happened but looking at photos from our wedding 2 years ago I can see it was flat and all one colour back then. Its not very big probably about 5km.

Should I be getting this checked at the docs at the moment? With everything going on with covid19 right now it's the last place I wanna go.

Thanks for any advice

That should say 5mm not 5km 🙄

There is an app where you take regular photos of a mole and it advises you what to do. I can't remember the name but it should be easily findable. Any changes should be checked.

Get it checked OP. At least have a conversation with your GP to get their thoughts on it. Any changes need to be checked. This website gives you good information about the ABCDE of moles. Early detection of problematic moles has the best outcomes so it's never a waste of hour GPs time to get it checked out.
