I called Monday and got an appointment for Tuesday (that would be today). I go in and within 5 seconds the doctor knows what it is: Basal Cell Carcinoma or Sub Ketosis. The latter is hardly serious. The former is slightly more serious because it is actually a cancer. I looked it up on the Skin Cancer foundation site and see a picture just like my mark. It said that it is fully treatable if detected early. What exactly do they mean by that? Should I have done something when I first noticed the mark a million years ago? Was it sufficient to have gone in when I noticed that it had changed? Because if detected early meant that I should have gone in when I first noticed the mark… then it was detected late… about 4 to 7 years late.
It takes two weeks to get the results of a biopsy back. ARGH!!! I hate waiting. It is stuff like this that makes me worry to no end.
