Mole removal results

Last reply: 1 year ago

Hi,

I had a mole removal on April 8th, 2021. It was my 2nd mole removal procedure, first one was done two years ago, and I was doing it in a different country.

Wanted to ask about getting results in Ireland... I have called my GP and they still haven't received my results. Called the dermatologist today, and they have said the results were already sent, however, they will send it once again to my GP.

I am under stress a bit... Could you please tell me from your experience how GP is calling out the results for the following procedure? Do they tell you if it's all good over the phone or there will be an appointment anyway, no matter the result?

I have been referred for the mole removal around the end of March, since then around 20 new moles appeared so I am going crazy a bit waiting on that result...

Thank you for your support in advance.

Regards,
Daria

Hi Daria,

Thank you for posting.  It is very common to feel worried when having tests for cancer, usually test results are given in person.  I hope that you have now got your results from your GP and the mole was benign.  Please don’t hesitate to call our support line on 1800 200 700 to speak with a cancer nurse for any advice.

Kind regards,

Cancer nurse.
