NO SKIN CANCER!! YIPPEE!!Just wanted to give the update. I had to wait longer due to the holiday, but just found out. Her exact words were 'benign moles'. Sheesh. No fun, but glad I did it. Get checked!
This one is for those of you who have logged long hours under the glorious sun with me over the years. There are a few of you. :) Some of us have also done the tanning bed thing....shame on us.
Well, after 3 of my friends have been diagnosed with skin cancer, I decided I needed to get another screening. I went yesterday and had 2 areas biopsied. She mentioned the word melonoma, but just said it doesn't mean it it melanoma, but that the test will indicate if I need to be watched closely or if there is anything to worry about. Melanoma is not a word that I really like to hear in relation to me or anyone I know.
SO--I have a lovely week to wait and try hard not to look online or worry. Hopefully it is nothing. Just the same, I will keep you posted.
So to those of you lovely sunbathers, please get checked out. I may have somehow contributed to your deliquency in this department in years past, so this is me trying to do better. Get checked. :)
