First of all I would like to thank you for all the kind comments on yesterday’s blog, and now for the report. I figured you would like to see a picture of me that my wife took after I got home yesterday after I had some cancer removed from beside my nose. Now you can believe that story or that my wife got mad and punched me while we were having dinner and forgot to take the fork out of her hand before doing so. Which ever story you like the best.
It seemed that everyone in the waiting room was my age or older. The doctor told me that this skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma, is almost always caused by excess exposure to the sun. He said it is from past exposures years ago, so listen all you young people out there, do not go out and bake in the sun just to get a great tan, and don’t use tanning beds.
I went to MOH Surgery center and if you ever have to get skin cancer removed, I highly recommend such a place. They only out minimal amount and then, since they have an on site lap, they can test the last tissue removed and if they still find some cancer cells, they take a little bit more, etc., etc. That way, the least amount of damage is done and you don’t have to wait a week for lab results to know if you have to go back and get more done. Google MOH Surgery and you will see what I am talking about. I go back in a week to get the stitches out. OK, got to go take my anti-biotic which must be taken with food.
You all have a good day now, you hear?
