    I have this mole on my face, it is so ugly and it makes me feel very self concious/paranoid about people staring at it, however people have told me and from researching on the internet I've found out that the NHS won't remove it for cosmetic reasons.
    The thing is though, it has gotten bigger over the last month or so and theres a small patch underneath it that looks as if its going to spread to it... and I read that if a mole has grown bigger or changed shape that the GP will usually refer you to get it removed, do I have any ground to stand on here? I'm technically not lying although I do want it removed mainly for cosmetic reasons.
    Has anyone here had moles removed on the NHS or could be of any useful input please?
