I know many of you can relate but I think I've had ALS, skin cancer, ovarian cancer and a brain tumor - all within the last few months.
I now have a mole or more likely an age spot on my face which has flaky dry skin on it. Of course, I've been playing with it so it looks worse. I had a similar "mole" or "age spot" on my leg with flaky skin or something crusty on it which I had the doctor check out about 6 weeks ago. It was nothing. I really do not want to see the doctor about this newest mole or age spot scare but hopefully I am not being irresponsible.
My question to you is when do you go to the doctor? I'm driving myself crazy charging off to the doctor every two seconds and I'm also embarrassed. Is a good rule of thumb to wait two weeks before booking an appointment? Obviously every situation is different and may warrant a visit ASAP.
I have to get a grip though! Going to the doctor takes a lot out of me but of course the reassurance is always so lovely.
