I'm feeling fortunate to go to a medical practice that has a doctor specialising in skin and lumps.
During a consult over something else a couple of weeks ago I mentioned to my doc that I had a lump appear on my chest.
"We'll have that whipped off lad"
Had the little fella removed this morning.Bigger piece than I thought ,about the size of a cup base ( cool looking stitches) .
The doc is 99% sure it was a skin cancer( just waiting for biopsy). Fortunately one of the more treatable ones that removal takes care of. But I'm going to have to regularly check and be aware of of differences in my skin a lot more now.
Mainly caused by exposure to the sun.
The culture here is to ask your doctor to look at any changes in your skin,lumps and stuff.
Glad I did!!!!
So please.,please - check regularly and be sun smart!!
Feeing a bit lucky today,perhaps I should go and buy a Lotto ticket!
I can still drink in moderation s not all bad
