Well had to go to the hospital yesterday to have a biopsy done on a spot on my cheek.I was surprised just how much the freezing hurt,not the needle but the freezing itself.It felt just about like the worst hornet sting I've ever had x10.I've never had freezing feel like that before,and it went right up around my eye and froze my eye lids,what a weird feeling. Next week I have to take the stitches out. Now today I've got a sore face.:mecry:

My wife has had 3 skin cancers removed, but so far not the real nasty types. Likely they can remove yours with no problems whatsoever. Never good to hear that word cancer, that's for sure. I'll keep you in my prayers Maynard!

What name did they give it....basil cell? Basil cell is the safest of the skin cancers. It is localized & easily removed. It's understandable you're being scared. I'm sure I would be too. I sure was each time my wife had a biopsy come back cancerous. Hers are all gone now, but another can come anytime I guess. She had 2 on her face...one on her nose, the other below her eyelid. The plastic surgeon did a great job. I seen the hole before she went to the plastic surgeon & it was shockingly large, but I laid my faith in the surgeons, and they did a superb job. In just a few weeks you wouldn't have know there had been anything done.
You'll be fine Maynard...I just know it.

My Dad has had many "spots" removed over the years, his Dr. is a little pro-active about it. He's never had one come back positive, but alot of them probably would have eventually. Too many hours in the sun. Maynard, best wishes & prayers from PA.
