Raised mole on lower back hurts with yellowish pus. Is it cancerous ?

I have a raised mole on my lower back. It started to hurt 3 days ago. When I felt it, I felt a hard bump underneath it. I squeezed it today and a bunch of yellowish pus mixed with blood came out and it still hurts. What should I do? Does this mean its cancerous?

Hi and welcome to HCM,thank you for your query.
it doesnt mean that it is cancerous but you cant be 1000% without patohystologic analysis. So it sohuld be surgically removed under local anashtesia and then it can be analyzed. It can be infalmmated skin lesion or atheroma. it is hard to say without seeing it., but further management is necessary.
Wish you good health. Regards.
