Removing a Mole Help?

Help, i removed a mole by my self, I was told i could tie a string around it and eventually it would fall off. I did this too one and it worked amazing. But when i tried it on another (A bit bigger one) after a long time (about a week and a bit) it was all dried up but not off so I gave it a little tug (Not even too bad, I did do the same to the first one as well) and it came off but started to bleed badly. It kept bleeding until I put a bandaid on it. What should I do?

    If I were you, I would keep pressure on it until the bleeding stopped.

    When I was younger, I always tried to self-remove this one tiny mole on my neck, a few inches from my jaw bone. I would just scratch at it for hours straight, until the pain became unbearable. All it did was bleed a little, and I was left with a sore spot on my neck for a week. It wasn't worth it. Trust me.

    You probably have to go get a stitch or two in it. When doctors remove them that's what they have to do. Removing them yourself isn't exactly a smart thing to do. Many things can go wrong, for example, what just happened to you. Next time let the professionals do it.
