Using health insurance in US- possible skin cancer. Does anyone have any evidence/estimate/experience with how much premiums may/will increase if skin cancer is found/treated?

When my hubby was diagnosed with a critical illness our premium more than doubled to about $1K per month. I've been putting off going to a doc because I am worried about how much my individual premium may increase.
I am considering going to doc with a fake name and paying as if I do not have insurance so I don't doom myself to a life of high premiums after paying in for all these years with no claims.
Details: I have a very high deductible HSA individual policy that adjusts the premium yearly based on my health status. I've had no health issues in the past 50 yrs other than the previous insurance red-flag which was forgiven as grief counseling.
