What could this be?

I have a red-strawberry, looking mole on my leg. I really don't think that it is a mole, it just looks like one. I first noticed it awhile back ago when I put pressure on the spot, it hurt like a bruise. It still hurts but in a larger area on and around this spot. I can even rub my finger across it without pain. What could this be?

  • I'm trying to find it at mayoclinic.com for you but I can't seem to..... I would see a dr. about that though.

  • It could be a hemangioma, I think that's how you spell it. I have several, they are really really red and look like moles. They are like a birthmark. But mine don't hurt. Go see a doctor to be sure. Better to be safe.

  • http://www.mayoclinic.com/health/medical/IM00306 does it look like this??? If it does then it's what GMR was talking about...but the website says they're birthmarks...I would go ahead and call the dr.
