Bit worried about random bleeding bump.

Last night when I was showering I discovered a small bump on my shin that had a bead of blood welled up on it. I didn't think too much of it but it was odd as I don't recall having been scratched or anything.

This morning after my shower I noticed the same spot was bleeding a touch again.

Worse is that a few days ago I developed this lump on the back of my left ear. It's mildly tender to the touch, but isn't very firm and can be moved around in the skin.

Of course all this has me afraid of some sort of cancer. Though what kind I don't know and I refuse to google anything because that never ends well.

It’s bug season right now. I have all sorts of red lumps and bumps on me that I scratch in my sleep without even knowing I’m doing it and then they bleed. And in the shower sometimes if the scab is not formed enough it comes off and the blood shows. I wouldn’t automatically assume cancer.....

I'm kind of freaking out again. This is the third day in a row that this small raised bump has been bleeding when I get out of the shower, and it kind of looks like maybe there is a smaller new one under it, though I'm not sure.

Could it be perhaps that I wash with a plastic body pouf, and it's reopening it when I wash?
