i saw my dermatologist yesterday; she could tell by looking that i had (not two but) three pre-cancers on my face. tonight i will start treating them with a topical "chemo" cream, carac.
while i was there i also showed her a place on my arm and one on my lower back. (i wasn't really all that worried about either one of those because i had shown them to another doctor not long ago). she agreed the one on my arm was nothing and then looked at my back.
when she looked at the one on my back, she asked me a few questions (how long had it been there??? had it changed in size or color??? etc...). after i answered her questions, she told me the slightly raised, discolored area needed to be excised and be biopsied.
so, i should know something about that in a couple of weeks. presently??? i'm just very grateful that my face can be treated with an ointment. i'll be concerned with the one on my back when and if i need to be.
this would probably be as good a place
as any to include that that these
places were not caused by using sun-
screen... quite the opposite, they
were more than likely caused from
lying for hours and hours, for years
and years in the sun donning baby oil
thank you ALL, again. you are such wonderful friends:)
love and God's blessings,
