What will happen since I squeezed my mole?

Asked by Ltryptophan (10835points) January 6th, 2012

I have a mole on my cheek under my eye. It’s been there a long while now. I looked in the mirror and it looked like it had a little blackhead in it. So I squeezed it, and it did. So…does that mean I am doomed?

You’re probably fine, but if a mole changes it’s a good idea to have a doctor check it out . It’s very rare, but my friends 23 year old daughter died from a little growth by her eye. It turns out it was a type of skin cancer that usually only old men get. Get it checked.

Hope that it doesn’t become infected. After it heals, see your doctor. It can be removed easily.

It’s always a bad idea to pop pimples anywhere on the head. Blood flow through the head circulates through the brain. There are filters in the major arteries in your neck which filter the blood reaching the brain. Popping a pimple on the head risks squeezing infectious material into the blood suplying the brain. Brain infections are always life-threatening. Just don’t do it.

I doubt you are doomed. Get the mole checked next time you are at the doctor. If it has changed at all recently or does in the future also get it checked. Tearing a benign mole is not going to make it malignant, but a change in a mole, size, shape, or color, or an odd shaped mole, or a mole that bleeds easily, can indicate cancer.

Leave it alone! My husband is always shaving one of his off accidentally, and it just grows back.

Wow.. @Sunny2, that is some interesting information. Its seems like things we do or otherwise don’t even think about can be serious and detrimental.. Thanks for the info.
