I had a colorless bump on my leg for...I don't know, actually, but I assumed it was some kind of mole, as I have a similar one on the other leg. The other day I noticed it was red and sore. Then it filled with pus, so I assumed a hair follicle under it was irritated (I'm getting a lot of those lately) and popped it, but today it's filled back up with a TON of crap, and the area around it is swollen. And it bleeds a LOT after popping. I know bleeding moles are dangerous, but this one bleeds because I keep popping it trying to clear the infection out; but could all this be the result of skin cancer? I didn't think moles COULD get infected. I'll be seeing the derm soon anyway - girlfriend notices a weird mole on my back and doesn't think it looks sketchy, but since I can't monitor it for changes it seems smart to get it looked at.
No idea why I can't just shrug it off like a sane person. The joys of anxiety.
