    Procedure or Surgery (Curettage and electrodesiccation): Everything went just as expected. I have to say I'm lucky both with how minor this was and how good my doctor was with me. She answered all my "silly" questions and didn't make me feel rushed at any time. I'm scheduled for a follow up in 6 months and expect to heal normally. I don't even have stitches! I truly am blessed and one thankful woman! Best of wishes to everyone else. I hope there is no need for me to continue on this site. At the same time, if it re-appears or another form shows up, it's great knowing there are others out there experiencing simular situations. I pray for the day when all cancers can be managed as easily as mine has been.

    I'm no doctor, however I do know that scars fade over time and make up can help once the site is healed. This tragic situation won't last forever. I have two spots of Basal Cell Carsinoma (one on each leg) and am scheduled to have them removed next Wednesday. I too am working through the feelings of scars and the simple fact that I have the big "C"! Not something anyone wants to hear. At the same time, I am thankful that this is not life threatening and treatable with surgery. I am choosing to detatch from thoughts of control and afford myself the freedom of peace knowing that my faith in God and the offerings of the universe will see me through. I hope you find the support you are needing. Hugs!
