Hi. So a mole can bleed when itched or irritated which can happen when it's in an eyebrow. That may be nothing. But you never know. Changes in size are also a bit of a red flag.  I am not sure what you mean by the edges have gotten bigger on the face mole. In short, ya. I'd get checked out. I don't know if it is rush rush but you can tell them you have suspicious things that need checked out asap. Take the first appointment available and get on a wait list. Another way to get seen sooner is to get checked out by your primary and have them do a direct referral. I've gotten in quick this way.  Let me know how it goes.
