Looks like I'm next on the cancer list
When I shaved my head for the Summer I had noticed a rather large growth on the top of my head. At first I thought it was just a large mole or something, but it's over an inch long.
As it's on the top of my head I can't really see it so I took a photo of it so I could see it better.
Comparing it to some various skin cancer images on the web, as well as presenting the image to others for opinions, it appears I have a rather large basal cell carcinoma on my scalp.
Isn't that just ducky?
Well, at least it isn't a melanoma. It definitely doesn't look like or fit that description so that's a good thing.
Luckily bcc doesn't normally spread to other parts of the body and isn't usually as aggressive or life threatening as a melanoma so I can afford to wait until I get home again in a week or two to have it looked at.
I'll want it cut out right away but I'm sure they'll want to do a biopsy first. I'd rather they cut it out and then they can run all the tests on it they like.
Perhaps since I'm a trucker and not normally home for very long we can work that out. I don't know. I don't even have or know a dermatologist at home so I'll have to try and find one there and see when I can get in to see them.
Ah well, if it isn't one thing it's another.
