Hi, first of all, thank you very much for all the support you provide in this forum.
This will seem like an AA introduction. My name is Alex and I have a problem with hypochondria. I recently had a very large mole removed from my head by recommendation of a very good dermatologist. However, shortly after recovery, my family and friends prepared a mild intervention for me to stop worrying about unfounded fears of illness, and willingly ended up going to therapy.
Long story short: I was strongly suggested to ignore all my symptoms unless they signaled a clear emergency. Nevertheless, me being me, I couldn’t do anything but monitor the most prominent moles in my body after the mole removal surgery. I've found some changes in a mole that I have above the right inguinal region. However, everyone, including my therapist, keep telling me it's nothing and that if I go to the dermatologist, I've lost my battle against hypochondria.
Should this changes worry me? Any other suggestions from fellow hypochondriacs here?
If you are curious, the photos I've taken can be seen here:
Thank you very much, for your time, attention, and feedback.
