2 lesions that don't heal and bleed are suggestive of cancer. I would see a doctor. The lesions can be removed using local anesthesia and examined with a microscope.

It may not be cancer, but it will be necessary to examine them to have any good idea.

If it is cancer, it's hopefully one of the more benign types of skin cancer and not melanoma. Best wishes.
