I was diagnosed with melanoma in October 2014, at the age of 26.
It all started with a bump on my scalp, which nobody could really see because my hair is normally so thick. Sometimes, the bump would catch on a hairbrush, or my headset would rub it uncomfortably at work. I didn’t know exactly what it was, but when I touched that spot, it just felt like a scab.
It never crossed my mind that it might be cancer.
