Hi new to this site. I'm on the breast cancer site, but had a BCC removed from my R neck. The buggar sat right on my cartoid. Surgeon said all marins clear.
This is the second time it was removed. The first one the primary Dr. removed it. So he/ they never consulted me. Jump ahead one year, breast cancer, and he ( surgeon ) removed it again, only this time surgically. Primary did a " scrapping". Think it will be back again? Will it turn to a melanoma? Since it at right on my cartoid, did it's lttle feelers reach down to the blood stream. Know I should have asked surgeon, but was kindof out of it. Thanks Katz

BCC is very slow growing and almost never invasive. Margins clear...good! Only advice is watch for more popping up and see a dermatologist once a year. I seem to like to grow those pesky little suckers (3 removed so far) and in places that are not particularly subject to sun damage. I never get upset about finding one, I just get it cut off and move on.

I wasn't horribily freaked, but already have one cancer to deal with, so didn't want to deal with another. Guess I was thinking it was so kind of mutant. lol I'll see a dermatologist for a full body check. My general surgeon took care of this one. Had a colonscopy at the same time. lol That was the deal for me getting a colonscopy. lol Katz
