Its not a mole as its not brown, its more of a reddish, pinky lump. I thought it was a spot at first bt its been there nearly a year and is about the size of 1/2 my little finger nail. It doesn't stick out very much but it keeps getting a horrible, really thick hair growing out of it that I have to keep tweezing out.
I had something like this, but more sticky-outy and without any hair, removed in 10 minutes as an outpatient at the local hospital. See your GP and make an appointment to get it cut out. Scar is very small.
Hi Im in a similar position to you - however - I would just like to say that if you are going down the removal because you're worried route - be aware that if you apply for health insurance you may have to declare this later on... (even if there was really nothing wrong!!!)
NannyMcPhee StripeKnickers, I had 3 (yes 3) of these removed from my face about 3 years ago. My GP referred me and I had the consultation & removal done on the same day. The most painful bit was the local anaesthetic as it is injected erm, locally, so can be quite sore. However, the whole thing took about 20 minutes. I don't have any scars.
How do you pursuade your GP to arange the treatment? I went to see mine the other day (had an appt for something else and mentioned it in a while-I'm-here sort of way) and was basically told not to worry and run away. The new lump that I asked about was reddish/pinkish and I thought might be something nasty (since it was new). I was really depressed about it for a while as I already have two lumps and didn't fancy yet another but it miraculously dropped off after 6 months. My baby used to make comments too, bink. I would love to have mine removed.
