Age Spots or Skin Cancer
(Middleboro, MA, USA)
When I was in my late thirties I noticed that I had a dark brown spot about the size of an eraser on my index finger on my right hand.
Hearing that woman start to develop age spots which were brown, I did not think much about it.
After several months I started to see a lot of Skin Cancer
commercials and what to look for and I got a little scared. This tiny dot on my finger was starting to worry me.
I made an appointment at the dermatologist and he said he would remove the spot and send it to pathology.
Easy enough I thought and He did it right in his office. The Doctor removed it and it was frozen and didn't hurt.
He said I would feel a tightening for a while but in time that would go away, which it did.
The pathology came back as precancerous dysplasia. The changes that if I had waited, would have turned into cancer eventually.
So I was lucky!
If you have any dark spots that you are concerned about please have them checked out by a dermatologist.
I am thankful I did!Skin Cancer MolesSkin Cancer on NoseSkin Cancer on the FaceSkin Cancer ReconstructionSkin Cancer Reconstructive Surgery
