Hello from JustAnswer. This is Dr. Love.
If the only time that there is bleeding or pain in this mole is when there has been trauma to the mole, such as from shaving or dog exuberance, that is not worrisome. If you were reading on a web site that pain is a mole is worrisome for cancer, they are referring to spontaneous development of pain in a mole. A mole can have pain with trauma just as much as the normal patch of skin on the opposite side.
Since this mole has been present since childhood, has been checked several times by your Dermatologist, and is only having symptoms with trauma, it does not sound the least bit worrisome.
If you would like for me to look at a picture of the mole, I would be glad to do so. You can attach a picture by using the icon that looks like a paper clip. But with the information that you have provided thus far, this does not sound worrisome.
If I can provide any further information, please let me know.
Thank you for the photo. I agree with your doctor that this does not look worrisome at all. So, there is no reason to be concerned about the appearance or the symptoms that only occur with minor trauma.
It does not look like any kind of cancer.
You are welcome.
