MelanomaMikeParticipantHello Mohamed, im sorry your in a scary situation with your skin abnormalities, untill your doctor CONFIRMS Melanoma or anyother skin conditions, i wouldnt stress to hard on it, BUT! Dont waste any time! Like you said, Morocco’ s Healthcare system does seem dismal but has Public Care called La CNOPS and a lower income insurance plan called (RAMED) that you qualify for being unemployed. Get your Biopsies done bro (test of the moles) that will explain alot….

CNOPS is an income insurance spesific for peaple who are employed by the state i am unemployed

To get Ramed i will need a month of paper work and extra 3 month to finaly have the insurance and if it is realy melanoma it will be late
I am still trying to get the money for the biopsy, i have an appoitement monday with a GP to see his oppinion , the mole on my arm is realy scary having multiple colors from dark to light brown on the edge and it seems spreading slowly to the the surrounding tissue , i cant sleep any more all my taughts are in darkness , the only place i talk about this is here
the mole on my right arm is defently spreading i feel healthy apart from swollen lymph glands in the groain, witch is wired but when i look at it i see that the mole has spread to the surrounding tisue , and i havent even done a biopsy , i thing the dermatologist knew it is bad thing bad he just wanted the extra pay to remouve it , i think im on the wrong side of the world if a want to survive melanoma , i need support but i cant get in my country

ourvanParticipantHi Mohamed, your situation is both heartbreaking and frightening, that you have to live with the unknowing due to the state of your medical system. I hope that you can find some peace until you find a solution. You’ll be in my thoughts and prayers.
