Referred by my regular dermatologist. Procedure was excision of melanoma.


I never worry about scars - internal or external. Some fade, some harden, some just sit there like a key to the palimpsest of your past.

With melanoma, it's more like dodging bullets, and the scar is not what you think about.

dear Britt -

Little round blob on surface came out, but longish horizontal incision (and therefore scar) to help it stay sewn up and heal afterwards. Report from the lab: looks like they got it all.

But as you know: there are no sure things in that business.

Thanks for caring.

And keep the aspidistra flying,

Well, I'm glad they got what looks like it all. Are you doing something for the scar or will it just kind of fade?
