I’ve read through a lot of posts on this site and thought I would post my own.
I have a mole of my leg that I’m not happy with. It’s much darker than my others and just doesn’t “fit in” I’ve also been driving myself mad trying to work out if it’s gotten bigger or more raised. Took myself to the GP who thought it was fine but said he would refer my to the skin clinic if I wanted. I have my appointment on Tuesday and I’m bricking it.
I know I should take some comfort in the GP not being worried but I know that they can miss these things especially nodular melanoma (which I believe this could be). I now also feel like I’m totally symptom spotting! Every headache, every little twinge, I’ve also woken up today with a sore throat in my glandes which has just ramped up my anxiety x100 as I know melanoma can spread to lymph nodes.
I’m 26 and have a 1 year old daughter.
