Not Completely Benign

We just heard back from my lovely PV skin cancer doctor. It turns out my instincts were correct. The mole I had removed was cancerous, but the margins were clear--which means no further treatment.

Not to nag--but if I had put off seeing the doctor for six months or a year (which is so easy to do), this would be a different post. I would be going home for cancer treatment. So get your skin checked. Annually.

Sorry to hear that it was not completely benign, but SO great that the margins were clear!
So glad to hear that!

diane - just catching up on your blog. So glad to hear the news was "clear" even though the diagnosis was not. I had my first full body check this year - and plan to continue.
