Strange Mole On Arm

Hello all,
I have recently noticed this mole on my arm and am rather concerned about it. Does this look like a dangerous or cancerous mole/spot in any way?

Hard to tell from the photos. Is it totally flat, or is it raised?

Most moles that end up being cancerous change shape and color over time, by themselves.  If this has not been happening, it isn't likely cause for concern.  If you aren't sure if that's been happening, keep an eye on it for awhile.
Mayo Clinic has some good tips: https://www.mayoclinic.org/diseases-conditions/melanoma/symptoms-causes/syc-20374884

It looks to me like you have light skin and a lot of pigmented freckles - this may just be a larger mole/freckle as it looks quite light and even-colored.
