This mole is slightly raised and you can see that it's the same color as the surrounding skin. Normal moles can come in a variety of colors and sizes.

Depending on the location, when a mole becomes raised it can get cut when shaving or interfere with clothing or jewelry. Most insurance companies will pay to have moles removed for these reasons, and also if they itch, hurt, or have any suspicious features.
