I have a tiny pin prick sized black mole which has recently appeared ,my other moles are brown . Would I be justified in booking a GP appointment so they can look at it ?

In my experience doctors would rather have a quick look at a mole than you leaving it.

You have reminded me, I need to get mine checked...I must have about 100 snd the ones on my back are so awkward to see.

I know I have one on my back and I need to really turn my head to see it thanks I will make an appointment to get it seem to

Yes - two risk factors as it is new and it is very dark. Of course it is far more likely to be benign but you need a qualified person to check.

I would rather get it checked out now when it's very small than let it get big and possibly more dangerous was really hoping it was just a spot but doesn't seem to be budging

Yes go now, I have had a few dodgy moles removed but they turned out to be ok, but if it is not you have gone nice and early. A relative had a melanoma removed a few years ago and has had no further problems....he just has to keep out of the sun.

Yes go, I have had two removed as have all my immediate very moley family! Best to get it checked.

Can't get a doctors appointment this week would a nurse be an alternative for this ?

when can you get one to see doctor?

I've been advised to call in each morning to see if an appointment for next week is available confused

Sounds as bad as our practice!
Personally I would rather get a doctor to check it. I am sure a few days will be fine to wait, but obviously you don't want to wait too long.
