The Mum here. First off all I would like to thank everyone for the purrs and well wishes, it really means a lot!
I thought I would give everyone an update on the situation.
Yesterday I went to my surgical appointment at the local hospital. There I had to show the mole to two different doctors. I was then told that it wasn't a mole, but a Plastoma (a change in the skin cells, but not usually a cancerous change) and due to new rules and the fact that it is classed as suspicious, they were not allowed to remove it at this appointment.
So I would have to go away and come back to the same hospital to see the same surgeon in two weeks time for it to be removed. The surgeon did lament the stupid rule and stated while he was 'pretty sure' it wasn't cancerous, he recommended I have it removed sooner rather then later.
As I am sure everyone can understand this has left me feeling upset, frustrated and a little angry. I just want to get rid of this thing as I feel it's taking over my life. Not only that, but surely not removing the Plastoma at that appointment and making another one has cost our NHS money that it can ill afford
Hopefully soon it will be all over.
