am feeling v worried. Had dermatology appt two weeks ago and have got to go back on Mon for excision and biopsy for melanoma. As far a I remember I’ve always had the mole but from my research (I know I shouldn’t) it looks like all of the abcde assessments apply. Not only that I think I looks possibly ulcerated meaning it would be at a later stage. Have finally managed to get pregnant after ivf and am so scared it’s all going to come crashing down. Just needed to express my fears.
very good to express them, cathartic, Do u have some one to talk too? i have a macmillan nurse at the hospital who is great. and my parner/husband and I have stage 4 cancer but dont worry much.
once u know your fears seek advice. dont let them fester. maybe if time allows keep a diary like I do. my memory is bad.
monday will be a big day for u. go with your partner or friend or family member. get them to write down what is said. ask questions and any that come to mind after the meeting. be gentle with yourself.
take each day as it comes, enjoy the sunny ones. You will be the 'best you can be' if you express your feelings and concerns and take time to reflect and not rush into knowing your mind and making decisions. Remember most skin cancers are treatable these days.
