Hello, hope everyone is staying safe during these trying times with the virus. I’m new here and if this is not allowed please accept my apologies.
So I’m 40 years old and my doctor sent me as an emergency to a dermatologist who wants to biopsy my flat mark on my chest as she says the size, color and shape makes it very suspicious for melanoma. So I joined here again I hope this is okay. I just wanted some advice on what we’re your ways of finding out? What made you go to a doctor for it? Asking because this may sound crazy but I’ve had this marking on my chest for a minimum 4 years. Please send any helpful advice or stories my way. And for the record I am a person who’s always had postpartum depression or any kind of depression been on and off of antidepressants for years now so my mind is getting the best of me and through this covid-19 happenings this is just pushing me to lay in bed and cry. I asked if we could wait until this is all over with because I don’t like leaving my house and they said no I need it done ASAP. Please please send any stories or anything my way to hear it from someone who has experience and not me just reading off the internet and getting more in a funk
