I wanted to give an update on my skin cancer status. The pathology results came back as a basil cancer cell.
The spot has been removed. Now I am healing up.
The doctor said he got all of it. But he still wants to do a follow up in 3 months to make sure. It will look like I have a polio scar on my arm. Hopefully a little Mederma will minimize that.
The thought of having skin cancer has left me utterly paranoid. I feel like I walk around with a bottle of sunscreen in my hand all day. Hubby has officially labelled me OCD on the sunscreen.
And I have a perfectly good reason.
There is a silver lining in all of this. I get to have my varicose veins zapped. The doctor did a test spot after removing said cancer spot. It was the most unexpected feeling. My leg started to cramp which he said was normal. I'll then wait 2 weeks and if everything checks out, I'll get the others done.
I know every woman feels like she has a "problem area." Mine are my legs and these varicose veins just makes them worse. So for $200 I can have these unsightly things removed.
And then I'll have beautiful vein free legs again.
I guess that means I'll have buy a mini skirt.
