    so, i have had this mole on my body since birth. i don't know why but recently i started to take notice of it a bit more. i have had a dermatologist check on it once (which was like 2 years ago) and he said it's fine as long as it stays the same (meaning in color/shape). the mole used to be bigger but it shrunk over the years of my childhood. i keep telling myself that it's fine because my grandpa has a similiar mole and my dad has tons of them around his neck; yet i still feel so insecure. so right now im trying to figure out whether i should have it cut off or let it go. i dont want a scar and plus the fact that my insurance doesnt cover a whole lot. i dunno, im getting a feeling that it can be fetal. kinda scared right now. :sadwavey:

    it would suck if im gonna die from some stupid thing like this. any suggestions? thanks.

    I doubt it's cancer if it shrunk considering that cancer is an uncontrolled growth of cells. Anyways go get that shit checked out if it bothers you so.

    Get it checked out and get an estimate for having it removed. I spent months going ZOMGZOMGOMZGOM about some swollen lymph nodes in my neck, but I found out they are swollen due to fluid buildup in my ears.

    I have like a hundred moles on my body. Although, that's like the only thing in my life I don't actually worry about.

    Wait, no... you're not. Go to a doctor.

    It interests me why people who have a clear and obvious medical concern, somehow feel they shouldn't go to their family doctor and get checked out.

    And don't quote the word "insurance" at me. Free clinics exist in almost every city.

    Whats more... they are not in poverty. They have computers and internet connections. It fucking baffles me. Its a sort of incompetent paralysis that happens. Amazing.
