Hi All. I'm new to the site. I'm a 40 y/o white male with fair skin. I saw my primary care doc for a lesions on my chest. It's certainly atypical for melanoma presentation, but it has enlarged over the past 18 months, and started to appear dry and bleed in spots. It appears like a slightly raised, reddish, mole-like. I didn't pay it much attention at first, but after my primary care suggested a see a dermatologist for a biopsy, I'm really nervous. I didn't sleep at all last night, so on top of the anxiety, I'm exhausted.
Any advice from you guys? I've always thought that by the time the mole/lesion is bleeding that it's quite advanced and there's not much that can be done. Any help you all can give would be so greatly appreciated.
Thanks so much.
