Moles: Is it bad to have a mole rip off?

Ok, here is my situation. I have a mole on the back of my neck which I tend to hit constantly with a brush and this morning I realized I am now bleeding and I could probably just rip it off as it is hanging. It is almost the size of the eraser of a pencil.

Should I just remove it? Should I seek a dermatologist to have it removed? How bad are they really?

Thanks so much for your help.

Rip it off. It might sting or hut but it will not kill you. The only thing you should be aware off is possible skin scaring.

I completely agree with Susan. Tempting as it may be--try not to touch it. If you have one of those big bandages that will stick and not fall off I would definitely use that to cover and protect it in the mean time until you can get your dermatologist to cut it off. I am sorry this happened to you and I am sure you will be okay, but reading your story caused a sudden pain to the back of my neck. Good Luck!
