Hey everyone, a couple weeks ago I noticed my arm was itching like crazy right where my mole was, I always avoid scratching it so I raised my sleeve and it was swelled out and looked awful. The swelling has since went down but it still itches and is no longer its normal light brown color (more of a red now) and does not have a perfectly circular shape. I called the dr and scheduled the appointment to have it checked out and the dr looked at it for two seconds and said "oh yeah that needs off there now". I go tuesday to have it removed and am starting to freak out. No one wants to discuss it with me. My mother (a retired nurse) has looked at it many of times of but doesnt say much, my mother in law ( a nurse) has only said that it doesnt look right to her, and my husband said for me to stay positive. All of this is just stressing me out because I feel that they just dont want to say what they truly think. Thanks for reading because if I didnt type out all of this I was going to end up sick with worry and stress since no one wants to hold a serious emotional discussion with me.View Thread
