The dr isn’t overly worried about any of the freckles, but doesn’t like the look of one, has decided it should come out. He still isn’t worried about it, but safe is better than sorry! 2 months ago

make the appointment. Check. Feb 22, yes it is far away but it is also with my DR, and it’s better than nothing. 3 months ago
We had a sun smart seminar at work, it was quite terrifying and I think everyone left completely convinced it was hopeless and we were all going to die from skin cancer, if statistics hold true, technically, one person will die from skin cancer. 2 from each seminar will have skin cancer.
A long with everyone else in the room, I am convinced it will be me. I have lots of freckles that have appeared over the years, not technically moles, they aren’t raised. I had one removed as a teenager which turned out to be ‘pre cancerous’ sure it could have stayed pre-cancerous for my whole life and never changed, but it doesn’t alter the fact, I was 19 then, I have seen more sun since, and even, oh-dear-God-I-am-so-ashamed-to-admit-it, got caught up in the ‘fake bake’ fashion when I lived in SC. So you see, I would probably deserve it, I’m not saying that to be melodramatic or to sound like some kind of martyr, but really because I have been stupid, I have not respected the sun, my skin or my health, and now I am shit scared it’s too late anyway…
Also, although people say you can, I don’t feel it is fair to go to a DR and say ‘look at my back- see anything you don’t like’ when I am not especially concerned about any one over any others, or maybe I am, but I can never remember which one it is.
There are real people with real illnesses and taking up a doctor’s time with my ‘maybes’ seems selfish. Although ultimately I am a mother and skin cancer kills, so maybe not getting them checked is even more selfish… 4 months ago
