Well that was an odd experience. Completely painless of course but that doesn’t mean you can’t feel what is going on as the doctor pulled and sliced and snipped at my skin.

I don’t want to make a big deal of this, twas but a mole, so hats off to the NHS staff at Hairmyres hospital. Wait wasn’t too long, they told me exactly what would be happening and they even make a nice cup of coffee. Proof that our much maligned NHS can work.

Unfortunately they wouldn’t let me take my mole home with me as it needed to go for testing. I had hoped to have it mounted and given pride of place on top of the TV.
