Scared I have skin cancer

Posted , 2 users are following.

So for the last year or two I've noticed a few spots on my hand. Little black dots, i didn't think that much of them until i got two more on that hand and the one appeared on my other hand. Then 4 popped up on my face, found one on my foot, one on my chest and theres probably more. Im terrified 😨. Im currently a 17 year old female. I would go to a dermatologist but my mom doesn't think anything is wrong with me and wont take me to be seen. Idk what to do. I dont want to wait before its too late (probably already is)

    Up to the age of about 30 you ca easily develop new spots, freckles, moles etc. Your body is still moulding to its adult form.

    The thing to watch out for is that they're all one colour, one size and one texture. If they change shape or size, start turning different colours, get scabby/scaly or bleed/itch see your doctor.

    Wear sun screen and see your dr if still concerned. x
