I found a suspicious looking mole on my body and have been referred by my gp to have it removed. I’m 25 years old and feeling really worried as it could take a couple of months to be seen because of the Corona virus. The doctor also told me to contact them if I notice any changes before I am seen. I guess I just want to air my worries as I’m feeling really anxious because I don’t know how long I’ll be waiting and if it is something serious the impact the waiting will have.
