I've had a mole by my nose for as long as I can remember. It's by my nostril on the left side. It never bothered me and I never paid any attention to it. When I woke up this morning it was sore. It is sore to the touch. I thoguht I might have scratched it in my sleep or something but it has hurt all day. No it hurts if I move my face certain ways. What could it be? I'm not going to look it up because i'm pretty sure the interent will tell me I'm dying. Thanks for any help.

Could just be that a pimple is forming under or very near it

The obvious worry is cancer. Has it changed color, size, or shape? The good news is that cancer isn't usually painful.

I had this happen recently. It turned out to be a pimple. I'm not really sure if the pimple was on the mole or behind it.

If it hasn't changed shape or size or color, it's probably fine. You could have just scratched it, or it could be an ingrown hair or pimple or something.

I'm not a doctor, just my two cents, lol.

It seems to look smaller than usual to me but like I said I never really paid much attention to it. It is also red and feels a bit swollen.

Probably just a pimple/acne. I get red bumps on my face in various places, sometimes it happens to be under a mole.

It looks red to me but I have never really paid much attetion to it until it started hurting. I'm hoping it's not anything serious though. Thank you for replying!

I've never had this happen but it's good to know it happens and it could just be that. Thanks for replying!

Good luck :)

I have a mole near my collar bone that started hurting like that. After one too many google searches I knew I was dying, and I was convinced it was changing colors and stuff. I had an ant bite, lol.
