The Only Good Part

October 2, 2012 · 21 comments

The only good part about another piece being taken from my back is the band-aid I have to cover the boo-boo.

I find out in two weeks if the tricky looking spot is cancerous again.

Please, if you haven’t already, go get a full body scan skin test at your dermatologist.

I’ve got my first skin cancer screening set up for the end of next month. I just quit tanning this summer after 10 years so I’m super nervous but happy I’m going!

ughh not again!? After your first scare I scheduled an appointment with a dermatologist to get my moles checked out, including one that I thought looked a little scary. All clear! Thank you Alyssa – you’re an inspiration!

I went yesterday, getting 2 more moles removed in a couple weeks! Never fun. I’m jealous of your band aid though! Mine were not that cool last time.

Sending you positive thoughts. My mom has had several bouts of skin cancer, so I know the wait can be scary and just how important it is to watch out for.

You completely inspired me to get my skin checked out. Melanoma runs in my family and I literally have too many freckles to count… so I can’t exactly keep an eye on my own moles, because there’s no way I could keep track of which ones look like what. I’ve never tanned in my life, but I lived in Tucson AZ for eight years and suffered from pretty horrible sunburns.
