I have had a suspicious mole on my hip for a while now and am beating myself up for not seeing the doctor sooner. I only really started to see the danger of skin cancer recently as my dad's best friend is suffering from it. He, therefore, forced me to book an appointment to look at a dodgy mole I have on my hip and my doc said to my surprise that he's very worried about it and sent me for a cancer referral.

I have my appointment on the 6th of February and I'm not sure what will happen but I'm just beating myself up that I didn't go to the doc earlier than now. I feel fine in myself health-wise but I don't know if that matters or not at this stage.

I suffer extremely badly with anxiety and see a therapist for it and I am also a massive hypochondriac so having this appointment coming up is ready messing with me. I could be totally fine but who knows... the suspense is killing me. I am really feeling for everyone else on this forum... sending my absolute love.
