2B brave act brave: Your real question is, "how do I get the courage to get it seen?" it is probably not cancer at your age and with this presentation, if so it's likely curable (we cure 2 of 3 today) but you're going to need to steel yourself and make a doctor's appointment. This is where your best friend comes in handy -- tell him/her, make the phone call, and ask him/her to accompany you. Cheers.
