Fellow Data Loungers, please offer some medical advice
I have a medical problem and I was hoping that someone on DL could help me out. A few months ago I started noticing a large black mole appearing on my shoulder, just below my neck. I didn't think much of it, but the mole kept growing in a rather ominous way. Rather that see a doctor I asked my friends about it, but they didn't have any satisfactory answers. And since I didn't feel any pain, and everything else seemed okay, I decided not to spend the money on medical help. But the mole has kept growing, and oddly, a few weeks ago it started to take the shape of a human face. Then just three nights ago, I looked at it very closely, and I could swear that it looked back at me. I also saw the beginnings of what looks like a small but well-formed mouth. What do you think I should do?
I'm not going to offer doodley squat. I hate when people come on here and ask for help then abandon us, and we don't know if your dead, or in the hospital, or what.
OP, I think you should call the Daily Mail or the Globe and sell the fucking story.
Ask Peter Griffith. He may have some advice...
I'm a doctor and can tell you definitively, don't worry about it.

We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
