The appointment wasn't so bad, just the anxiety before it.
I pointed out a few places in particular I wanted her to look at, but she also did the full check. It felt kind of rushed/fast, but she also was thorough I guess. She checked my scalp, feet and things like that. She must not get a lot of hypochondriacs, because when I mentioned it, her reaction was pretty much like she couldn't understand why I'd be worrying so much about melanoma. She told me more than once that I don't have that many moles, and that the ones I do have look completely normal for the most part. The one on my arm I pointed out because of it's weird shape, she didn't seem concerned about, she acknowledged that it was a bit oddly shaped but says sense it hasn't changed it isn't worrisome. One on my abdomen I pointed out because it is darker than my others she called a clarks mole which from what I've read is another name for an atypical mole, but didn't seem too concerned. She said it doesn't need removed and to just keep an eye on it. My brother has one that looks like mine on his abdomen too, but his is a good bit bigger than mine. I did notice she didn't use a dermascope to check anything, she just used her eyes. Overall she didn't seem really concerned about anything, and spent more time talking to me about my weight than my moles.
She said that losing weight will help a lot of my skin problems like stretch marks and the spots of discoloration on my legs. She kept telling me that I'm young and seemed to be hinting that my weight is what I need to be worried about, not my moles. She said I didn't need to come back for a year, and that A. I don't have that many moles and B. The ones I do have are all normal looking other than the one on my abdomen, which is just darker than the others and I think she called it a fried egg appearance.
