I have put this subject off for quite some time and now I must face it (no pun intended) I have this reddish spot on my cheek about 1/2" away from my nose. It came and went for the past year but now it has decided to stay and of course I am thinking it is skin cancer. I have compared it to all the pictures on the internet of different types of skin cancer and it does not look like any of them. Not quite dime size..more under the skin...kind of reddish and flaky (a little) and once in a while it itches. It has grown and continues to grow which is why I decided to get it looked at. I had a spot in that same area about 8 years ago that was indeed skin cancer (sun damage) and it was scraped off and healed just fine. This is slightly different though. I am worried. I had an appointment set up with the same Dermatologist that seen me before but he could not get me in until Feb, 2011. I pondered that for about a week and searched for a new doc that could see me immediately. I ain't going to drive myself crazy with this over the holidays and if it IS cancer I want it treated NOW. I swear..it's always something... just like with Brooks.... it just gets damn discouraging sometimes..you just wanna say..SOB!!! Enough is enough.... damn crap!
