"Don't leave it as long as I did!"

About: Nottinghamshire County Teaching PCT / Keyworth surgical dermatology service

(as the patient),

I had a spot on my face that just didn’t quite ever heal. We all have white headed spots, we all pop them- it’s fun right? Eventually, after trying Savlon and some other face creams, I went to see my GP and then the dermatological service. A B.C.C was diagnosed and 12 weeks after my initial visit to my GP it was removed. Don’t leave it as long as I did. I can see the spot on photos 3 years old. I do not really believe its gone because I seem to have regular spots on the scar, but maybe I am worried about nothing. I’ll see my GP in six months to be sure.
