Hello all :)
I am a 27 year ok healthy mom of a 2.5 year old boy (my everything!!). About 3 weeks ago my sister noticed a black mole on my back and said I should get it looked at. Naturally I am a worrier and slight hypochondriac so I called my doctor right away. She set me up for an appt. I went in and showed her my mole. It was miss shaped light and black and raised. All the characteristics I don't want to have. He said she was concerned but not worried. He said some back tomorrow and have it removed so I did. I right away thought this is it, it'll be cancer and my life is over. Well my whole family said it's nothing, don't worry, skin cancer isn't going to kill you.
My doctor called me today after two weeks and said that it was malignant. My heart stopped, this is so devastating!!! She said the biopsy says that the mole is localized and malignant and that I need to go to a plastic surgeon to have more removed.
I don't even know what to think, I don't know what this means and I am trying har but all I can't think is my baby will lose his mom!!
Any advise would be lovely!!
