I went to the dermatologist one day last week and had a suspicious spot removed, or scraped off. Always before I"d had pre-skin cancers taken off with liquid nitrogen. I saw a PA, not the doctor that day, otherwise I would have had to wait a few weeks, and I knew it needed to be checked soon but hasn't been there very long. Anyway, she isn't too concerned that it is a cancer. It is healing very well. I just wonder what it could be if it isn't a cancer. To me, it does look like one, but not melanoma, we know it isn't that. It was red, raised, not very tiny but not large either and just looked like something that needed to be taken out, it did not look ordinary at all.

sorry I did not post sooner, but it's nothing. Some kind of sun damage, an really long word I had never heard of, and then she said it was like a strange freckle. Well this freckle was raised, red, and strange looking. Just goes to show, not all these strange spots are something. I figured it would be nothing serious. But it's always good to hear that.

Glad your results came back good. It was good you had it checked out. Like you said it was nice to hear it was okay.

Hi I'm glad the doctor isn't too concerned that's a good sign! Keep us posted when you get the results back ok. I pray its just nothing. I wish you the very best.

I get things like that from time to time and they have all come back as nothing
it runs in my famly so I always have it checked the one thing I know is that if it ever is then I will deal with it till then I am not going to fret over it .
Fix the things you can and dont fret over what you can not .
This is the only way I can live.
Best wishes
