How long does bleeding last after mole removal with scraping and cauterization?

It should not last 2 days unless you bump it or something. The devil, so to speak, is in the details, and as a result, you should at least talk to your doctor about this. Are you keeping it moist, clean, and protected? Are you showering now? When is the bleeding occurring? Where was the surgery done? All these are important points.
