My appointment is a month from now. If I just found another mole, should I try to go to a different doctor sooner?

Mole Removal and examination
The importance of skin cancer screenings and self-examination cannot be re-iterated. I have had so many patients who were justifiably concerned with moles and moles seeming "different" and needed removal. If you are concerned I would try to see your dermatologist sooner. Please let me know what happens.
How long should I wait to have a mole examined
