    Simple removal surgery

    Procedure or Surgery

    I just went to have a lump on my forarm check and I was told it was a skin cancer the doctor removed it (about the size of a quater) and sent it out for biopsy. I watch him remove it there was no pain he was very good at it. People keep telling me he cant diagnoise without a biopsy but he did tell me it is a skin cancer the biopsy will tell us what type. The waiting is the worse thing to deal with so far. I hope he was wrong!!
