"Mole removal dermatology"

About: Tameside General Hospital / Dermatology

Well i was referred to dermatology by my GP with a changed mole. On my appointment the lovely dermatologist said it most definitely needed to come off as it had suspicious features. They put me down as urgent and the very next dsy i had a phone call to go in and have it removed. I was so pleased they acted so quick. So the day after i had it removed. I wss treated so well and was made to feel relaxed the nurse and the team were lovely. The only thing now is 4 week + im still waiting for my results and I feel so anxious. No news is good news we say but i need to know. I have phoned several times but no answers. I cannot and would not fault tameside but i need my results its been too long.
