It was difficult to decide to risk removing a lipoma that sat so close to the nerves in my jaw and sat over my jugular vein. But it was all I could see when I looked in the mirror and fiddling with it daily, I began to have a constant loathing of it. I talked with several doctors and none felt safe or qualified to me. I often thought I'd try to get used to it. But I kept looking for a doctor who I knew was the right one for the job.
After 3 years, I felt comfortable with Dr. I and scheduled with her. It was the most amazing feeling to have it out, I wanted to cry. Dr. I was so careful to be conscious of ensuring that the scar would be next to invisible. I'm confident now and proudly put my hair up out of my face, chin up and smiling!
