Hello and thank you for the add.

My family and I had our Medical Exam last month and our Embassy Interview last week. Unfortunately a mole on my husbands shoulder was of concern by the Dr (for Embassy). So we've been through the proper channels and had the mole removed and are now waiting for the NHS to give us the results of the biopsy. Our visas are obviously pending the findings etc.

Basically I am wondering if anyone here has had a similar situation and if their visas where approved even if the outcome was malignant and treatment was undergone. I obviously will have now worries if all is well and it was just a mole!

Any experiences would be greatly appreciated, and thinking g you all in advance.

Jo

I have read everything in the UK forum for the last seven years. I don't recall any finding of malignancies at the visa medical. I know of one who had a previous malignancy years earlier who had to get a doctor report concerning when, treatment, and that she was recovered. Her visa was issued.

Thank you. That sounds promising although I know each case is different. Just keeping our fingers crossed that the mole is just that.
