So the mole I just had removed from my back tested positive for 'atypical cells'. Not cancer, but pre-cancer; cells that had begun to mutate. I don't have to do anything about it right now because the test shows that they removed all the atypical cells. We got it before there was any big deal. I just have to go back in three months to follow up. I figure I will do a serious mole check and make sure if I have any more that I get them removed soon.
S everybody, check your body! If you have moles that aren't perfect circles, that are as big or bigger than a pencil eraser, or have changed size or shape in your memory of them, go get 'em removed. Skin cancer requires chemo and I assure you, you don't want to do it if you don't have to.
I sure as hell am not going to be taken out by a fricken mole after all I have been through. Sheesh.
