I use lots of sunscreen and sit under the bimini but I know I’m still getting the sun. Recently I’ve notice a couple of spots…one on my chest and the other on my arm. I think I have skin cancer.
I have an up coming appointment with my doctor, a new doctor as my old one just retired. I thought this would be a good article to write about.
The other one is just a dark patch, which is how the one on my arm started. I actually thought they were ‘age spots’ like you get on your hands. So, when the one on my arm puffed up a bit I went, hum…..
Okay, I saw the doctor today. He check both spots as well as my back, neck, shoulders and scalp. He’s not sure the one on my chest is anything but the one on my arm is a…”mumble, mumble, mumble lesion.” Some kind of slow growing skin cancer.
He ‘burned’ it off today. Actually, he froze it. He thought it would hurt although you couldn’t prove it by me. Maybe later it will. It’s supposed to blister up like I’d burned myself with the stove or something.
In this case the old adage…dang, that’ll leave a scar…will hold true. Like I don’t already have lots of those! So, it wasn’t a big thing, it was cancer but thankfully not a really yucky type.
So here’s a picture of the after burn. If it turns really gruesome I’ll add more comments and picture; for those who really like that sort of thing.
He said to keep an eye on the one on my chest and that I’m doing a good job with the sunscreen. So I guess that goes to show, SPF 30 and a bimini is a good investment for your health. As is a hat and those new shirts and pants with SPF 50!

Definitely believe that which you said. Your favorite justification seemed to be on the net the easiest thing to be aware of.

Can I simply just say what a comfort to discover a person that actually understands what they are
