Well....the spot was cancer. HOWEVER.... it was basal cell and all on the surface. So doc cut it out and burned it. He said it will not even leave a scar. Good thing cause it's about the size of a dime..and ugly!!! Doc siad good thing I did not wait til February to see other doc because by then it would have spread more. This type of tumor spreads wide...not usually deep...but can involve a lot of area if let go. Doc said last year he removed one on a guys back the size of a plate!!! yuk!! Numbness is wearing off now and its getting a little sore but thats nothing. I am SOOOOO relieved that it was taken care of that easily. Thank you ron50 for your post about your experience with skin cancer. You are 110% correct. If any of you have any suspicious spots..anywhere...do not let them go...please get them checked out...even if just for peace of mind. LoriS...thanks for thinking about me today...u a sweetheart! thank you all...as always for being family...Love ya all!!!

Throwing confetti for Jennie. Is there any follow up you have to do?

I'm happy it was taken care of easily.

Take care - Tina

Good to see you!! I will follow up every 3 months just so doc can continually keep a check on me. He checked my entire body for any signs of anything on my skin.... great doc! I just feel so good that something was so easy..YAY!!!

So glad you went and got it taken care of.

Guess it only goes to show that we must be ever watchful and take care of things early.

Hugs,

Marie who loves kitties

Glad to hear there was an easy remedy for it. Sometimes you just need to get in before there next appointment. I'd go someplace else if need be. Determatologists always seem to take forever to get into.

That is really good news jen now it is one thing you don't have to worry about. My wife sue sees a skin specialist every six months and gets the once over. The good thing about seeing a specialist is that he uses a specialised surgery where he biopsies after cut . If he does not get clear margins he keeps going till he does. The one time she went to a gp clinic they removed a spot on her neck(mouth level) four operations later they finally got clear margins near her collar bone. Hugs Ron.

...well, when you put it that way, you can have anything that your heart desires:)

I guess you really are a "vintage model" after all...as for the mechanic and your rack, I'll close my eyes and leave you two in private....LOL LOL!!

Then, I'll see you at the Cabo, they are going out of b'ness since we left town, LOL:) Our patio table is waiting, just sitting empty:)

Was really great to see you again - you're a happenin' sugar mama:)

Love/Craig
