I found i had skin cancer melanoma on my leg four years ago. I had it removed more or less instantly and was left with a fairly large hole in my leg, which does not look very nice but i'm not concerned about it because it saved my life.
I was treated at the Middlesbrough General Hospital and the staff there were all fantastic. I was always well looked after before, during and after my treatment.
I was petrified when i first found out because there did not look anything wrong with the mole on my leg. Even the doctor who first took it off thought that it would be okay. But the news wasn't good and i had to have a further operation to see how far it had spread.
Anyway i was closely monitored for three years and did have a further mole taken from my back but that one was fine. I would advise anyone to go to the doctor if they suspect a mole is not right because early treatment is your best chance of survival.
