This is a serious thread for once - don't think I've started many of those before. This may not be the best place to ask for advice but what the hell.
My fella's got an appointment at the hospital next week for a biopsy. He's got several moles on his back, one of which has grown and has been discoloured and itchy for a while. Being a bloke, he kept quiet about this until last week, when I made him go to the doctor. They took one look at it and pushed the hospital appointment through - on the NHS - within 3 days, which makes us think it's a pretty serious situation. There's a possibility that it could be skin cancer.
I'm going with him to his appointment on Tuesday. I know it could turn out to be nothing, but I'm worried sick. Obviously I'm keeping quiet about my worries as I need to support him through this. He's clearly very scared but isn't saying anything.
We've been together for 11 years so I know how to deal with him. Just wondered if anyone had any advice on how to deal with all this.
I know it's probably nothing, but can't stop worrying... and I don't want him to know that.
