carcinoma is an ugly word
Wednesday, February 26, 2014
I have a small skin tumor, fairly common. It's this:
What's weird is that I went to the doctor about something else and he spotted this small red spot that I never even considered as anything worth checking. Just a small, boring red spot, about the diameter of a chickpea. Just goes to show that you never know what's going to cause you trouble. It's treatable, at least 90% of the time. I'll go with those odds.
I always thought that skin cancer is something that happens to other people, not me. I guess this time the other person is me.
I just found out a few hours ago and am trying to process it, I'm not crying, I'm not particularly upset, maybe I should be? I guess I'm sort of surprised right now.
Spark friends, next time you see anything different on your skin, get it checked,just in case.
