Do they just put the scariest melanoma pics online?
Surely not everyone's melanoma looks like the pics online. If I ever had one anything that looked like the pics online I would be RUNNING to the derm. Surely there are people who had something that looked like a common every day mole and it ended up being cancer. The pics online have to be extreme cases, which is causing me to worry more. It's day 2 of waiting, hopefully know something by Monday. It's going to be a LONG weekend! I've spend the last 3 days googling melanomas, treatments, survival rates, etc. I know it's a bit extreme considering the dr said it was nothing to worry about, but my mole was larger than an eraser and scaly. It was one solid color, a light brown, but still I can't help put worry and this fear will not leave my mind. I'm 6 weeks pregnant and I've basically forgotten I am because this has consumed my mind. I look at my other 2 children and burst into tears because I fear leaving them.
