03/10/2014: Dermatologist Appointment


So I have an appointment today with my Dermatologist to check all my moles and especially my skin in the radiation field on my neck and chest from the radiation treatment in October.

She sees two moles on my back that she wants to watch, but everything else looks good.  Then she spots a small dark black spot on my left thumb that she wants to biopsy because its too dark.

She injects some lidocaine, I don’t feel the injection at all, thank goodness, then she cuts out the mole and will send it off to the lab.  It comes back 2 days later as being mildly atypical, so we are good, I don’t need to have any more area scraped out…
