I have a dark mark on the foot, originally dark brown (mole-colored) with red hints. Now it is faded with a reddish tinge. Though it is flat, I can feel a slight rise when I run the finger over it. And it is painless. The shape is two small circles linked together, a little like two cherries joined without a stalk. It has a faint reddish shadow between two circles

I have attached two images. The first is the original mark. The second is its current state. The mark has been there for several weeks now, roughly a month. There is no pain. And the growth is just the shadow that seems to have appeared in the second picture.
