I have a mole on my back, I've always had it, but these past few years it's started growing, and spreading. I wasn't too worried about it until I scratched it in the shower on accident, the pain was indescribable, I feel to my knees. Two years ago I was sick, to the point where I couldn't eat a single thing, I was stuck on liquids and ultimately lost over 80 pounds with no effort at all. Now, about two weeks ago, these small black lines started to form on my nails, my thumb has two and my ring finger has one on my right hand, and my thumb has one and my left. I don't have health insurance, or any source of income, I'm about to be twenty one years old in a few months, and I still live at home. I've told my parents about this, but they honestly don't care, and would rather say "Well go if it gets worse." when it's been progressively getting worse over the years. Noone seems to be taking this seriously, not even myself, at times I just completely forget, but then I remember how I have a long family tree of the males on my moms side of the family almost all having some kind of cancer, my grandpa died from it, his dad died from it, my cousin got a mole removed that had signs of being cancerous, and now I do, but noone cares. I have no strive to do anything anymore, I haven't left my house in weeks, I'm just wasting away like nothing. No matter where I go to get this tested and dealt with, someone is going to be left in debt. I don't have any friends to talk to, I don't have any family to talk to, I'm just slowly turning into nothing. I've never been this scared in my life, yet, I don't care at times. Ugh.

  • Immediately go to a hospital or clinic that accepts destitute (People who have no money) patients (some hospitals run by churches will). Melanoma is a serious form of cancer, and you should get checked out immediately. Good luck friend.
