Skin Cancer?

Here I go again.

Looked down at my leg and discovered two weird flat red marks, about an inch apart from one another. Both are slightly bigger than a pencil eraser.

Absolutely no idea what they are but, I jump to the conclusion of skin cancer.

I'm so tired of rushing to the doctor every two seconds and keep reading that going to the doctor for reassurance isn't the best thing for a hypochondriac to keep doing.....

No looking anywhere for reassurance is not good, it just helps to fuel the behaviour.

It is hard but it is up to you to rationalise what you symptoms really mean.

Sounds like you have had pressure of some sort on your leg

Re: Skin Cancer?

Thank you so much for your reply!

At the bottom of my heart, I don't think these red marks are anything sinister but I have this need for certainty. Something I need to work on!

Re: Skin Cancer?

Nothing is certain and that can be so hard to deal with. Great that you realise what you are looking for. It is a great start
