Health Anxiety and Hypochondria

Hey everyone, this is my first post here. I am a 28 year old male. I recently started having another bout of health anxiety and worry and it is pretty severe. I started worrying about green stools that I had and thought it might have been from some guacomole that I had had. Then it moved on to my moles which I can't stop obssessing about them. I have been to two dermotologists in the last two weeks and one regular doctor to check me over and they didn't seem concerned. I had four removed pretty much because I wanted too and they came back "clear". I just can't get over all of my other moles and worry that they missed something either looking at me or on the tests. I don't know what to do to get out of this worry as it seems to be taking over my life right now. I have started therapy and have had one session so far. I don't know what to do.
