It still didn’t seem real that I was even asking the question “Do I Have Cancer”?
I have spent practically my entire life outside. As a kid we played outdoors from dawn til dusk.
Bikes. Baseball. Pool. River. Woods.
As an adult I spend lots of time outside. Kayak. Bike. Softball. Outdoor events and broadcasts galore. Out on the boat or going on float trips or swimming with my kids.
I used sunscreen….most of the time. Should have used it more of the time?
How serious can it be? What if it’s something that I should have seen long ago and it is going to seriously effect my health?
My girlfriend Kat had a skin cancer scare recently and luckily she and her doctor caught it early & it was removed. It was unsettling and honestly a little scary. But I used the tinge of fear to be proactive and get an appointment set with my dermatologist asap.
I had a growth biopsied off of my arm that the doc thought very well might be Basal Cell Carcinoma.
A couple stitches and a big ole bruise later I was now playing the waiting game. Luckily for me after a few nervous days later i was told that it WAS NOT SKIN CANCER!
