Over the past several months, I have noticed a mole that itches and is raised above the surface. This evening, it itched so badly, I thought it was a tick and scratched it trying to determine what it was. Then, I went to my husband to see if it was a tick, and he said it did not look like a tick, but it was bleeding.
It bleed quite a bit and we put alcohol on it and a bandaid, but it still itches. Should I call my doctor tomorrow or is this probably just a mole I tore open?
My brother did have an itching mole on his back as well and he was diagnosed with melanoma. - That doesn't mean what you have is melanoma, but I would certainly check it out. I think an itchy mole is one symptom of a possible melanoma.
