Hello Worried51,

Don't worry you won't bother the doctor that's what they are there for. It may well be nothing to worry about but to put your mind at rest, I would make a phone call to your surgery and show it to your doctor. If you feel a little bit shy, remember that doctors are used to seeing so many patients in your situation and you can also request if it helps to see a female or male doctor if you prefer. Your doctor will be best placed to tell you exactly what it is and whether you need any treatment. So don't hesitate to book that appointment.

Let us know what you find out!

Best wishes,
