Removal

Sorry if this is gross, but it is a part of my life.

I had a precancerous mole removed when I was about 21 years old. I figured I would be pretty good from then on out about going to the dermatologist and getting stuff checked out. I haven't been. I guess I'm lazy.

For about 2 years I've had this tiny mole on my leg that has been looking and acting like the precancerous mole that was taken from my face. I finally went in and had it removed along with three others that were getting on my nerves. I'm waiting for results, but this is not a cause of anxiety in my life. I don't care if they are cancerous or not. My reason for blogging is so that I can remember a few details for next time. My body loves to make extra cells, so I'm sure there will be a next time.

-The limit of moles removed at a time is four. This has to do with the post lab work.

-It takes a week to two weeks for the sites to heal. You have to keep them covered and poly-sporined in the meantime.

-Each site itches like the dickens afterward! It drives you crazy and you can't sleep.

That's all.

You know... I have never had any of my moles checked out and because of what you have gone through I wonder if I should.

And to answer your question on my blog.... the Farr's are great. They are living at his parents house while they are on their mission and taking care of their 3 kids. It was good to see them. They asked about you and Dan.
