Default Cancer scare

I'm waiting the results of a cancer screening at the moment. I noticed a mole had suddenly appeared on Sunday night. I elbowed my way in to see a doctor on Monday, they arranged an emergency biopsy today and I've got 48 hours to wait for the result.
I thought I would be panicking or feel numb but actually all I feel is utterly miserable.

Lump removed under a local. Amazing how quick the analgesia kicked in. It was difficult to stop myself from trying to watch. Definitely not an experience I would choose to go through again.
So now they're going to test the lump again and then run some tests to see if anything could have spread.
I have to say the NHS is wonderful. Within a week they've dropped everything and got this sorted out and it didn't cost me a penny and I don't have to worry whether they'll treat mne if something similar happens again. It's amazing how much pressure is removed by having the NHS.
I know that nhealth care is a human right but still, it feels good to know that we have it
