On Friday I had to go back to the Dermatologist to have 3 more “dysplastic” moles removed. My doctor thought these moles were questionable, so erring on the side of caution, she decided to remove them. The lab results ended up showing that the one on my forearm was pretty bad, so my doctor had to go in deeper to get clear margins. The cut was so large, I had to get 5 stitches!
I was very brave and endured the 3 numbing shots, and what felt like 10 minutes of stitching! It was not fun at all; although, having this done is still a lot better than having melanoma!
I’m learning the hard way, but now I always wear sun block. My days of having a nice dark tan are over unfortunately!
If you think you may have any “questionable” moles (or even freckles), please don’t hesitate; get them checked out! It’s all about prevention and a lot better to find out sooner than later!
