I went yesterday for my regular six month body check with my dermotologist who I have seen for 40 years. I have had probably a hundred moles removed during my lifetime, all benign. Anyway, he noticed one on my back that turned a little red and said it probably had been irritated. He said he was not concerned but took it off for a biopsy. Even the nurse said it looked harmless. May be because I am OCD, I am worrying frantically. Do you have any coping skills. Thanks.
