What are the signs of skin cancer?

I have a mole under my stomach. Near my vaginal area. I accidently scattched it and it started to bleed. I noticed that only the edge of the mole is open. I haven t really looked at it to see if it s really bad. I m really conserned that may it could cause cancer. I researched. Some answers say it s fine nothing to worry about, some say I could get skin cancer. Should I be worried?

Thanks for your question on HCM.
Moles are pre malignant lesion for skin cancer. But it is not 100% true. Not all moles are going to develop in cancer.
Moles on face are more prone for malignant transformation due to constant exposure to UV rays of sun.
Same thing is true for moles on high fruction area like in inner thigh, under arm, belly buttin etc.
So no need to worry at present. But if you don't want to take chance than it is better to remove it surgically.
