My hubby has been diagnosed with skin cancer on his face. He never sunbathes and always stays in the shade etc., but he has had cancer twice before in other locations (not skin cancer) so has been told he has a predisposition to the problem. He's been waiting for notification for surgery and he's now received an appointment which is ages away. There's already been a delay in getting it diagnosed as during an original appointment with our GP some time ago he was told it was 'nothing to worry about' but when he went again because it wasnt going away, now he's told it is cancer. I've been trying to contact the hospital to see if we can get the surgery moved forward or get a cancellation but they wont answer their phone and never return voicemails. Just wondering where we go next - who can we speak to, who will listen - this is so terrifying and nobody will speak to us about it. Is there a patient hotline or something we can approach just to get someone to give us some advice on how we can get him seen more urgently, given his cancer history.
