Can you identify the worrisome mole? If you can't (and I sure couldn't!), you should make an appointment with your own dermatologist for a full-body mole check -- especially if you're a redhead like me, or fair-skinned.
This chart should NOT take the place of a personal check-up, but it might help you in identifying suspicious moles: So really, will you do it, please? If you need a specific personal prod, do it for my brother-in-law who was diagnosed with melanoma last March and has been enduring a year of debilitating Interferon treatments (it's like having the flu for a year) in an effort to improve his chance of survival by 10%.
Oh, and the mole Dr. Voss will be removing is the one on the lower left. How did you do? Did you guess correctly? One of the other moles she'll remove is on my left ankle, not more than an inch away from one of my surgery scars! How's that for sigh-inducing chutzpah?!
