I have a cancerous mole

I have a mole that s obviously as problem.. And I was wondering if someone could tell the type of problem by my description. This mole began as a normal medium brown, oval shaped mole.. slightly raised and nodular a few millimeters in diameter. The mole changed to a dark blue/black and became engorged with blood.. enlarging and protruding above the skin over time painful and nodular. It had a red/purple bruise surrounding the engorged mole itself, about the circumference if a nickel. It pulsated with a mild pain and was painful to the touch. This would come and go. It would stay engorged with blood for a few months and then fade again for a spell before coming around again. The mole faded to a redish/purple color.. the surrounding bruise would fade away entirely. As time went on, over the span of a couple of years, the mole became more and more engorged with blood.. protruding through the skin more.. to a larger black mass that was very painful, about the mass of a pencil eraser, with a larger circumference. Until finally it burst just recently.. It bled a lot and I had to bandage the damn thing for a few days until it wasn t so much of a mess. Now its faded back to a grayish looking mole with red spots and a faint purple surrounding it.

Hi.. Since you are noticing changes in the appearance of these moles, you would need to be examined and evaluated. Evaluation may need obtaining biopsy from the affected mole and histopathological examination.. See a doctor ASAP...
