Hello all, The new dermatologist I last saw recommended I have 3 abnormally shaped moles removed. The results came back that they were "precancerous", meaning that if I had gone without treating them, they would have turned into cancer. The surgery costed me about $400 out of pocket, which I couldn't really afford. Should I go see another dermatologist and get an opinion? I have one aunt and one uncle that have melanoma. I just wonder if the Dermatologist's office is scaring me thinking I'll get cancer if I don't have a mole removed every 6 months. Of course I don't want cancer, but if those moles were indeed precancerous, does this mean I should go get checked out every 6 months as a precautionary measure? The last doctor's visit left me with some pretty unsightly scars.
