I got a call from the doc. He had consulted with the surgeon, who reviewed the MRI results. Turns out the surgeon says the MRI was misread! The growth hasn't passed into the bone, brain, or anywhere else and is localized to the skin. Very cool news.
I do have to wonder about how an MRI can be misread though. I thought the whole point of an MRI was to get a very clear image of the area in question. I guess there must still be some human interpretation to it.
Still haven't heard anything about the lab results of the biopsy. Doc says they are probably backlogged, but he's still betting on it being a simple basal cell carcinoma type of thing and not anything to get worried about.
What do you mean guys don't knit?

Perfection is overrated. Knitting is meant to relieve stress, not cause it. Relax and enjoy it.
That's awesome news.
While MRI's are high tech and offer an incredible view of the body, they are still "read" by humans and most likely read first by a radiology resident and then the attending reads it and amends the report.
