Scratched Mole--really bleeding

I just accidently scratched off part of a mole on my chin, and it wont stop bleeding. It has been bleeding for aprox. thirty min. Should I be worried, or go into the doctor?

Hello,
It may be small hematoma which you have accidently picked and scratched and it has started bleeding. Quickly rinse the area and apply an antiseptic such as neosporin. Also consult a dermatologist and get it evaluated.

I hope it helps. Take care and regards.
