I just received diagnosis via phone yesterday. In denial. I went to derm to remove a wart and he? How long I had that blemish on the side of my nose near my eye. It has been there approx 2 years. It is smaller than a pencil eraser and is light almost white looks like a mosquito bite. I have been covering it with makeup not really to hide it. Just always applied a highlite to the hollow of my eye.. It would bleed sometimes and I would attribute that to a reaction to cosmetic.
I dont see the surgeon again till Tues. I know that she will say Mohs surgery is best treatment. I realize that this is not a life threatening disease. Most of the BCC pictures posted look ugly or like an angry rash. This is not a bad looking blemish at all and my fear is that the "roots" may be deep after 2 years. The resulting scar may look worse. How will I keep a bandage on that area? Will I be able to return to work right away? Ok now that I have wriiten this out I realize that I am very vain. Just so afraid of the unkown. Anybody out there have Mohs so close to the eye? People seem to post as I am now when they are scared. I need to see more happy endings.
