I recently saw a dermatologist regarding problems with a spot on my nose. It turned out to be a pre-cancer spot and my Dr. prescribed a cream to use for 3 days. I used the cream but now the spot is back. I also just remembered this strange mole I found on my abdomen a few years ago but a Dr. said it was nothing. After reading about melanoma, I'm not so sure it was nothing. The mole started off very small and very dark. It peeled often and bled a few times and has grown over the years. The worst part is that I'm only 25 and feel like I'm being paranoid but then again, I do have a pre-cancer spot on my nose that won't go away. I can't find any information on other syptoms of melanoma to check for besides looking at the mole itself. Are there any other physical symptoms such as nausea, dizziness, etc.?
