Mole questions

Well I know that I have a couple of raised bigger moles on my back that I never check but I am assuming that they don't grow. When I was brushing my ringers on my back somewhere close to my armpit area, I noticed a new raised (I don't know what to call them really) and then I started thinking about my moles.
I wasn't too concerned and even calmly thought of scheduling time to have them checked.

Then went to the bathroom, washed hands etc, then I just started counting the ones on my face. On my ear lobe there was very tny two moles. The firs one got slightly bigger and also its not flat anymore, a bit raised. I got panicked but I don't think that it got big over a short period of time, like maybe over a few years and I just notice it new? So how long time is alarming and how long is normal? Because I know moles getting bigger in time is also normal. They were dark to begin with but they didnt change color, just one of them is a tad bigger now. Not even 1 mm bigger maybe. Not sure.

I try to keep myself calm but never had my moles checked, so. I doubt I have more than 50 moles in total.

Slow growth is generally nothing to think about. Rapid growth, as in very noticeable, need more attention. I've had moles both grow and shrink over the years.

Thanks Bin.
Actually, when I checked it again I noticed it was not a big growth, it's still a very small mole and the shape is still round and fine.
But when you panic with the first initiative thought and see the problem magnified, you need some time to think rational and calm.
