My melanoma battle: I didn’t think the cancer would ever come back, but it did…

Jacinta O’Brien had been taught as a child to always check her body for signs of skin cancer. When she was in her 20s, her family lost her uncle to melanoma. “I’m aware of the danger of it,” she says now.

n 2018, she was living in London, working as procurement manager, a job she still holds, now with Tesco. Then aged 38, when a mole on her forehead began to itch, she visited her doctor three times. “It discoloured a little bit and got darker. He kept sending me away, telling me it all looked normal.”

It was when a colleague who sat opposite Jacinta in work asked, “is that mole on your forehead ok?” that she decided to expedite matters. “She had noticed it because it had changed. That was really the push that made me become more aggressive.”
