Well phooey! More skin cancer-UPDATE page 3
Whiner alert, whiner alert!
I just came back from my dermotologist and it seems an area of basal cell skin cancer I had removed a year or so ago has come back with a vengeance and is now what they call morpheaform or sclerosing cancer that sends out tentacles and is super aggressive. I'm sitting here with an earlobe that looks like someone took a bite out of it then burned it with a cigar and I have to go back and get the rest of the cancer out that he didn't get out yesterday, next week. I'll no doubt lose part of my earlobe and my ability to wear an earring on that side. I'm more upset about that than anything else!
Wear your sunscreen folks and slather your kids up real good too. My doc says all my skin cancer problems came from being burned as a kid. 30+ years ago it just wasn't that much of a big deal to wear sunscreen.

I'm really sorry for you. I really hope the doctors can remove or treat the cancer. I will be praying for you.
