The mole was never raised until about a year ago, and over the past year it has doubled in size. It is skin colored and symmetrical. It felt almost like it was an ingrown hair and I picked at it a little and bled easily and was very irritated. It is almost the size of an eraser now. I am certain that I have basal cell skin cancer. I am uninsured, I only have money to insure my family and not myself. Can anyone fill me in and what I can expect to deal with getting it removed? I want the mole gone, but I don't want to pay for alot of tests, etc. Can I go to a lab and have them take tissue samples without spending an extra $100 to find out nothing I didn't already know or just have it removed without testing for basal cell cancer? Any ideas on how to save money taking care of this issue would be appreciated.
