Cancer sucks

Well folks I am sharing a photo of my new forehead...Not that it is anything splendid and all...Just showing where they removed my cancer...And all it was, wa a tiny bump...

So if you are of a certain age (I'm 62) and haven't been to see a dermatologist...please do...It might save your life.

did you goto Dr Paul Bunyon by any chance?

Cancer treatment has changed so much in my life. When I was a kid in the 60s, they would not even say someone had cancer, they would only say they were very sick, or they called it "C" as if cancer was unspeakable.

There were also people who thought it was contagious, so if someone had cancer some people would not go to see them.

And it was always the same - everyone died from it.

This is a great time to be alive.

Glad you're on the mend and free of it.

And you are 1000% correct. CANCER DOES SUCK!
It took my mom from me at the ripe old age of 11. An aunt 2 yrs later. My mom's mom when I was 18. And a good high school chum when I was 21. And several more folks I've cared about since.
So this is for you cancer... (see attached)

Iím glad youíre now cancer free my friend. You have many more miles ahead of you.
When I was a kid no one used the term Ďcancerí either, it was merely some one was sick or ill. I pray a cure can one day be found as itís taken away way too many family and friends.

Glad they got it. I've had multipe basil cell carcinoma and squamous cell carcinoma ( 2 most common forms of skin cancer) removed throughout the years. Toymaker, from past experience be prepared for other spots to pop up. I procrastinate with one on my nose a few years ago. They had to cut so much off they harvested a section of my ear to rebuild my nose. So I can smear you very good now. ��. Hey, I've got to laugh about it. I joke about getting a free face lift as they stretch the skin to cover what they've cut off. Toymaker, I can feel your relief they got it. Did they use the MOHS technique to remove? I have a spot behind my ear now I need to get a biopsy done on. The bummer part is I can't wear my helmet, so no bike riding.
