Pain after malignant mole removed
Hi ,
I had a malignant mole removed from my calf muscles last July. Lately my leg is experiencing a dull aching sensation almost constantly.
I was told that i don't need to go for check ups but that i should watch for swollen glands in the groin. I don't seem to have any of those.
Should I be worried about this sensation? If so what tests etc. do I need to get done?

Please advise.

Karin, rather be safe than sorry. You’re not supposed to have chronic calf pain, so have it checked out. Good luck.
