The mole should be excised in my opinion.

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

Welcome and thanks for posting your query to the forum.

I can understand your concern for the mole and the related oozing of fluid and blood from it.

In any of the case of mole which oozes fluid or blood we must take it with caution.

It is very important for any mole to get it removed at the earliest when there is increase in size above 6 mm or change in color or any pain or itching or burning sensation and if there is any oozing especially of blood from the mole.

I suggest you to meet a doctor and get it excised I gems of its best management.

I hope this helps.
