See a Spot, Call a Doc

Just a little reminder to everyone that since the warmer months are upon us to keep an eye on our skin and if you see any unusual spots on your skin please contact your doctor. I had a spot near my left eye that made me uncomfortable so I made an appointment to see a dermatologist. Am I glad I did. She took a biopsy and it came back early stage cancer so I am having it removed next Thursday. Some of you may know that my sister passed away 2 years ago from ovarian cancer but she also had melanoma. If she had caught it in its early stages it wouldn't have advanced to that stage. I'm not a big sunbather tho I did do my share in my teen years and when my friend owned a tanning salon years ago but I'm bored easily and need to be doing something instead of sitting there. So, I don't want to be preachy, but please, it's better to be safe than sorry. Keep me in your thoughts next week.

Have a great weekend!
