Question for nurses


I know this isn't about nursing school or drugs but I don't have health insurance so I'm trying to figure out if its worth the medical bills to go to the doctor or if i'm being paranoid. I am 26 and having been tanning on an off since i was 15, i grew up in the south so its part of the culture to be tan and ive been weaning myself off of them, i believe it is an addiction, but i have had a pretty much colorless spot growing on my back, very slowly getting bigger over years and for the past year my immune system seems to be going downhill, im sick constantly, with fevers, chronic coughs, dizzy spells, and nausea. im worried but i dont know because the bump isnt a weird shape or color. If anyone has an opinion id love to hear it.

ps-besides that one bump, i dont have anything but freckles.
