  • Tell her to get it checked out. I don't mean to be alarmist, but it sounds like it might be cancerous...

  • I had a spot on my lower leg about the size of a pencil eraser. Watched it for a few months, had it taken off but not biopsied. Came back a littler bigger and it became sore and would bleed everytime I touched or bumped it. Had it taken off again, biopsy showed cancerous sweat gland. Very unusual but very treatable/cureable. They say when a sore won't heal and bleeds, to be alarmed and have it checked. Let us know what happens.
