I have a mole on my face that has changed quite a lot. On Monday i'm going to hospital to have it removed, they will then test it to see if it's cancer, they think it isn't but we will see, just hoping they're right as when my GP saw it the first thing he said was "skin cancer",, don't suppose they will know for a few days so wish me luck.

    A lot of people have a Mole on their face, and it's just a skin blemish, NOT Cancerous at all, that GP needs to learn some tact.

    thats true to a point but this mole was for years just flat and now its big and sore, the consultant agreed that it could be cancer and thats why its being removed and checked out, the GP is first class and I was seen by the hospital within 8 days, the removal should have been done 2 weeks ago but has been delayed understandably, so I cant fault the NHS. As for moles on faces I agree and I have a few that are no problem.

    I’m glad it went well for you @woodbine let’s hope it all turns out well.

    i actually had one particular mole on my arm which became sore and raised, then it scabbed and then...it fell off! That was about six years ago. Also another which spread badly which was tested and was found to have become a lesion of about a half inch diameter. Both of these on my right arm which is the one in the sun all the time when I used to be driving for quite a while each day. The point being that they weren’t cancerous. ?
