What !!!!

The skin doctor is finishing up my appointment. He’s telling me the problem area looks great. I agree with him. Last thing I have one more spot I need checked. Silly me not a big deal, he’ll look and I get another appointment in six months.

What I think I heard him wrong. Your not sure what this is. Out comes the doctor tool, he gives a measurement to the assistant. You need a biopsy this needs to come off. Any vacation plans coming up? Do you swim? Well yes my reunion is this weekend. Ok lets schedule the biopsy after the reunion.

Dr shakes my hand and leaves. I get dressed and then think of the questions? Dr is in the hall. Yes you will have stitches for ten days and need to stay off the area. Right again after the numbing meds wear off the area will hurt. We start with scheduling my return appointment. The nurse tells me everyone who has not had skin cancer gets yearly appointments. He’s new. I ask about Cowdens Syndrome. He looks surprised and I get a six month return appointment for a skin check.

After all my questions are answered I get a biopsy for early August. The biopsy is on my bum. It looks to be a long ten days.
