Today I noticed that a mole on my neck has changed colour. I've had it all my life and it was always dark brown (I have white skin), but now it looks colourless and is bigger and irregularly-shaped. It's Friday evening and I'm planning on phoning my GP surgery early on Monday morning to see if I can get an urgent appointment the same day. In case this doesn't work, I've booked myself a GP appointment online, but the earliest I could get is 4th October, which is 2 weeks away. I'm worried about waiting this long if it is cancer. Hopefully I'll be able to see someone on Monday. If not, I might try and book a mole check at a specialist clinic, who could see me sooner. Can anyone advise me on what I should do if the GP won't see me on Monday? Is 2 weeks too long to wait?
I've looked at photos of skin cancer on this website, and mine looks a bit like one of the non-melanoma ones, nodular basal cell cancer, because it's colourless (but the lump on my neck is much smaller than in the photos). On this site it says that this one hardly ever spreads and people almost never die from it. I'm still quite afraid though and want to get it checked ASAP.
Thanks for reading.
