Skin Management of this skin lesion!

A 58-year-old man is evaluated in the office for an enlarging dark mole on his back. One of its borders bleeds occasionally. He feels well and has no history of rash, trauma to that area, or skin cancer. The skin examination findings are shown (Figure).

Which of the following is the most appropriate next step in management?
A Electrodesiccation
B Excisional biopsy
C Liquid nitrogen
D Superficial shave biopsy
