When I had my annual checkup, the Doc suggested that I go to a dermatologist to have my bumps and protrusions and various (ahem) blemishes looked at. So I did today.
It appears that I'm entirely non-malignant. This will no doubt come as a surprise to some.
Even better, the Doc was a no nonsense, tell it like it is sort. I was out in 10 minutes, along with a "come back in 2 or 3 years" sort of message. I wonder if there were more of these sorts that the cost of health care would be lower.
