I AM SPOTLESS!

Actually that is not true. I have spots, they just aren't cancerous! In the past I have had a few skin problems that required removal of tissue to be sent to the lab, and reports of two different kinds of skin cancers have been the result. I had my yearly scan this morning, and I am free of any kind of cancerous spots! Yahoo! I have some spots, a few of them are a rosacea that he gave me a prescription for, and many are a sebaceous type of spot, inherited, and not cancer, nor does it turn to cancer.

I am most thankful. My doctor said to continue to avoid the sun, have a yearly scan, report any weird spots, and use 45 SPF makeup and lotions if possible. That I can do.

That's awesome! My dad goes in every 6 months for his to be checked and gets more and more "chunks" taken out. I'm glad there is a way to catch this before it is out of hand. Keep on a slathering!
