Skin Cancer Warning Wear Sunblock

This is not topic related to my blog but it is something I like to share this time every year.

This is me. Two years ago I went to my dermatologist for a skin tag removal under my arm that was just annoying. While I was there, I asked the doctor about a tiny little pink “pimple” on my face that had been there for a few months. She did a biopsy and it came back cancer. Thankfully it was not melanoma. It was Basal Cell which can continue to grow and become disfiguring. It was small on the outside but deep under my skin. If you have any places on your skin that is unusual and won’t go away, get it checked out. Take it from me, get annual screenings, wear sunblock and a hat.
