This. This times a thousand. Prevention is a hundred times better than attempting to treat cancer. If you ignore it, and are unfortunate enough that it's melanoma, and metastases show up, you should probably start picking out a box and a plot. Alternatively, you die a horrible, prolonged death. Having nursed palliative care caner patients, I can assure you that you don't ever want to end up there. The inconvenience of having it checked is nothing compared to that.
