I been feeling itchy lately, around my body especially the head nose and eye, at first I thought it was winter gnats, but it seems more than that.

This morning, 5am I took off my shirt, and my mole near the neck was bleeding,and it hurts. I been to the doctor few weeks ago with acid reflux and been taking medication (omeprazol) which doesn't do any difference.

I can't book an appointment till Monday. Been reading online and cancer pops up. Is it more likely to be cancer? If so how long does it take to spread? I can't see much changes,just blood coming out and pieces of dead skin, no rash or anything.

How long should I wait? I feel a nuisance going there all the time. But quite scared.

    I have had a few new moles appearing on my body and i could relate to your itchy symptoms. Unfortunately i didnt get it checked out in time and now i have to wait till i get my insurance back. The only difference is that my moles have not bled. If yours was actually bleeding i would go get that checked out asap. If it bleeds that is not a good sign because if it was growing and getting larger and possibly popped or somehow opened up that could mean if it was cancerous (i hope its not) the cancer would be able to spread throughout the body faster because it went deeper into the skin. Thats not a good sign. Get to a dermatologist or doctor asap just to be on the safe side. There is no way the cancer can spread after 1 day of the bleed. Maybe a week or maybe months. If you can recall, was the mole new? Has it always been there? Was it growing? Was the shape a perfect circle? All of those questions can determine if it was really cancerous or not. Best of luck. Promptly consult a doctor.

      Get it checked out bro. Could be cancerous or completely normal. I'm no doctor so i cant tell you which one it is. But from your symptoms your best bet is to get a medical opinion. Let me know what they tell you man. A mole that bleeds and hurts isnt good news but good thing you detected it fast. Even in the worst case scenario you'd still be on the safe side if you do whats right and consult a specialist.
