Yes Laurel... I'm right there with you... the checking never stops or it seems that way. I've moved my 3 month check ups to a closer location, 15 miles instead of into Portland which is about 80 miles. Had to move it out about 6 weeks, so I'm even more up on my own skin checking because of the delay in getting a "professional" check up.

I've not heard of Afirm, I'll google it. I, as you, have the age spots, red spots, etc that then to drive me a little crazy.

Way to go keeping up on your own care, it is a must.

Hugs, Carlene

Thank you for the reminder and the internet link for monthly checks. I just returned from the dermatologist to check on progress of basal cell skin cancer surgery on my shoulder and little scraping near one eye. I expected him to say it looks wonderful and come back next year. He did say it looked wonderful but then was looking carefully at my face - age spots, red places and said he was concerned and wanted me to start using Afirm 2x at night and come back in 3 months. I wanted this to just go away but I am realizing this is my life style from now on - be vigilant and alert.

Sadiemay,
Yes, body check, breast exam... all of the necessary checks taking place.
Good to hear that all is going well with you and your health.
My new internist was very pleased in Nov when I saw him to see that I'd taken his advise to work on boosting my immune system. I'm not sure he thought I'd loose the weight I'd lost but that sure was an added bonus.
Great job, keep it going!!!

I agree, it's very important to do monthly skin checks. I tend to "eye ball" my back where the skin cancer was in the past. I was several years ago diagnosed with atypical nevus = or abnormal moles. To my shocker one day and my derm's shock, I had another mole develop within the scar of where the tumor grew. It wasn't centered, but it was within the scar. They removed it right away due to not liking it.

Keep up the good work ladies and spread the awareness!

Best wishes,
Cindy

Sadiemay, you are so right... I do it the 1st of the month... along with a breast exam... it's just something we must do. There have been studies linking breast cancer with melanoma... even if there's no family history. SO... the big thing is take care of yourself.
