Raised old mole on chest, started bleeding of nowhere. Should I get it checked ?

I have had a raised mole on my chest my entire 30 years of life Friday out of nowhere it started bleeding and hadn t been scratched or hit or anything it bled Saturday and now is starting to hurt tonight and it looks as though it is pulling away from the skin I put a band aid over it but I am wondering if this is normal or needs checked out.

Any long standing mole that has a sudden change in the form of pain/itching/ altered sensation or bleeding needs proper assessment by a dermatologist...So i would advise you to see a skin specialist soon ,so that the lesion can be examined and if needed, a biopsy can be done

Hope it helps
