Mole Change

14 Sep 2018 14:27

Hi everyone,

Really concerned about a mole on my neck that has recently changed. It used to be a flat, typical brown mole approx 4mm.

It has now changed in the last week to be approx still 4mm, but raised and pink/skin colour and painful to touch. No bleeding or anything, almost as if there is a spot under it but no puss.

Sorry to be in a flap but I have a 10 day wait for a dermo appointment and in the meantime am absolutely freaking out!

Hello lucas152,

Welcome to our forum and sorry to hear your mole has given you so much anxiety. You've done the right thing though in getting it checked out and it won't be long now before you have your dermatology appointment. It is normal to feel stressed or to feel like time is dragging on while waiting to see a specialist, so try to stay busy and distracted if you can and avoid looking things up online as it will only make you worry more!

I hope all goes well at your appointment and do come back here and let us know what they said if you get a moment.

Best wishes,

Lucie, Cancer Chat Moderator
