I have an irregular mole on the back of my neck, What should I do ?

I have an irregular mole on the back of my neck that appeared in December. At first I thought it was just a blemish, but it's now obviously a mole. It has been growing in size. Periodically it scabs over and bleeds, and now seems to be painful even when not being touched. This week I noticed a knot in my neck higher above it which I now wonder if it's a lymph node (it became noticeable after I tried to get it to "pop" after it started bleeding, this is when it was finally told by someone who could see it that it was in fact a mole). I don't currently have insurance. What should I do? I would like to get it removed immediately.

Never ignore any mole changing size or having infection in it.
You should consult dermatologist as soon as possible.
But to have temporary relief,as mole is infected,go for,
An antibiotic and antiinflammatory medicines.
Apply antibiotic cream.
