Never Seen Moles

by Kaitlin
(Manchester, NJ, USA)

I noticed a couple of moles on my body were getting larger and darker one day, one on the side of my scalp and one in my arm pit.



I decided to make an appointment with a dermatologist to get them checked. When I arrived the doctor told me he wanted to biopsy both of them.


After taking pieces from both sites he sent them off to a lab. Several days later I get a call from his office saying that they were Malignant Melanoma and that I had to come back in to have them removed.


I made the appointment immediately and returned to the office in a week. They once again dug out the Skin Cancer Moles and sent those pieces out to their lab.


Several days later again I received a call from their office telling me the pieces were malignant and I had to go back again to have more skin removed.


I made the appointment, went back and this time they had to take a good chunk of my scalp to make sure they had it all.


They also went back again two more times for the one under my arm. While I was there for those two apparently a mole on my lower back I never noticed was malignant and taken as well.


It has been a few years since my moles were removed and yet the scars are still significant enough to be noticed if my hair is pulled back or I raise my arm.


Now I take care to cover up with Organic Sunscreen when I go out and a special facial moisturizer with sun protection in it.


So far so good.
