I mentioned a few weeks ago in a post that I went to the Dermatologist to get a mole check. Well, it turns out the 2 out of the 4 moles I had removed were "questionable". The doctor described them as dysplasia - irregular cell formation. Ugh! Basically areas with dysplasia can develop into melanoma, so I am glad I got it checked when I did. It's all about early detection! Now I have to go back to the Derm and get the some additional skin around those sites removed, just to make sure they got it all. I am dreading having this done, so my mommy has agreed to come along to my appointment for moral support.
I typically use sunblock when I am spending time out in the sun, but not on a day-to-day basis, so now I'll be changing that. The Florida sun exposure seems more intense than in other areas, so I need to be extra careful. If you don't already use sunblock daily, I hope you'll learn from my mistakes, and start!
