Hello and welcome to EHF,

I appreciate your concern,

It's hard to say anything about a skin lesion without seeing it first hand or atleast via an image.
If a chronic bump or mole suddenly shows such changes, i would suggest,to show it to a dermatologist for a physical exam and diagnosis of the condition.

I hope this is helpful,

Wishing you the best of health.
