I don't sign on alot these days. I had my 2-year followup exam, bnlood tests, and x-ray. Thankfully NED from kidney cancer;-)!
I did have a short (hopefully) run in with skin cancer (melanoma) at the beginning of the year. I had gone for a motorcycle ride the week before Thanksgiving last November. Moving the bike out of the garage, it started to tip over and I caught it, wrenching my shoulder a little. I went in to my PCP and she said I needed physical therapy. While looking at my shoulder, she asked if I'd ever had dermatology look at a lesion on my shoulder. I said no, everyone who has seen it over the last few years said that it was nothing. To shorten the story, it turned out to be a Stage IA melanoma. They removed it, so now I'm monitored by two Drs; every 3 months for dermatology and every 6 month by urology. Better than the alternantives!
Anyways, I do check in periodically to see what it happening with everyone.
