I am amazed that I found this discussion board, I never knew it was here. I have been battling skin cancer for years. I can spot a basil cell on my body a mile away. I also have been diagnosed with stage one melanoma. I have so many scars that I have lost count. I will be going back again soon to my doctor and am sure that I have two more spots on my face that will be removed. There are days when I just cry. My friends and family have been great. The staff at the University of Michigan Cancer Center do a wonderful job. But sometimes that darn vanity that women have takes over and I wonder if I can fight anymore. The ones that bother me the most are the ones on my face, I have the hardest time with those. And now two more, really!
I have many moles and not a one of them is like the other. So go figure. I have had spots removed that have been a combination of basil cell. squamous cell and akinetic. It is running rampant on my body, but I am one of the lucky ones. I have support and understanding even when I lose it out of the blue and now I have a place to post my thoughts and concerns to share with those that are in the same place I am.
