I have been reluctant to ask since this seems such a minimal problem and I am so new to the forum. I have also had a hard time talking about it, to John, family or anyone. I have been diagnosed with skin cancer, they are convinced that its not a life threatening kind and I go to the specialist May 1. Hopefully they'll just remove, and I'll go forward from there...it's on my face :sad2: Vain Vain I know but I don't like that idea. Just think of me and hope for me that they are right as to the prognosis, or heck I am even hoping that diagnosis is WRONG (not much chance of that though...I've known what it was for 2 months and refused to go in and hear it aloud.) don't ignore spots that stick with you and don't go away. Catch it early and get it treated and don't be stubborn like me. So many of us think if it don't hurt it'll be okay, but mine has started spreading and I have 2 spots under suspicion now. Thank you much...love you all for your thoughts and prayers...even if some don't post I know they will pray for me!
