Okay thanks. And have you been referred urgently as a possible Squamous Cell Carcinoma?

This looks more like a Basal Cell Carcinoma. However it is important to be certain as I suspect removal is important

Your wait shouldn’t be much more than 2 weeks to have this examined, then removal within a few months, this is fine to wait
