Well, this is no way to spend a sunny spring day. Having my first basal cell skin cancer removed. I'm waiting for them to test the bit they cut out to see if they got it all. The bright side is that it's apparently the type that doesn't usually kill people, just makes em uglier. And I did ride here on my GRiSO.  Pillage!

Wear your sun lotion fellas, at least on yer beak. Don't scroll down if you don't want to see the wound.

Right on, brother. In the US skin cancer, while accountiing for less than one percent of all cancer cases, accounts for the majority of the cancer deaths. Got to check yourself often - have some close check those spots you can't check yourself - and have anything that looks suspicious check out by a doctor.

Sorry to hear that!  It looks more like a nasal cell skin cancer removed.   Very Happy   And let's hope your first one will also be your last one!

I had to undergo a similar operation last week! Unfortunately for me more procedures to come...  I starting to use sun lotion on a daily basis during the last few summers, but (as with many other things) I used to think that this was for sissies only...  Rolling Eyes  

Time to grow up.

After the third round of digging and testing, they think they got the root of the little bastard. Unfortunately, it was much deeper than they thought. Now we're waiting on the plastic surgeon. I have insurance, but somehow I can see this costing more than a lifetime supply of sun lotion...

yeow. Any sort of cancer is a right royal bitch - at least yours is on the outside - mine was in my head/brain. Quick recovery mate.

Thanks for the idea Mark! I may even have some almond color silicone out in the shed!
The scary thing is that it was the smallest colorless bump on the surface, but that was apparently just the tip of the iceberg. I really hadn't noticed it before I went in for a skin check. Of all the irregularities on my skin, that is the last one I would have suspected. My Dr. says she sees more and more of these on the nose and quite a few of them belong to motorcycle riders. Go figure. And go for a skin check.

Feels like it too! More cutting, grafting, and stitching ahead on Monday. The Doc said Mark's silicone sealant idea is a no-go. scratch

That would be a Hole punch LBC , They might have got all the cancer, but they missed that big ugly growth sitting on your shoulders Laughing
Sorry , couldn't resist. Good you caught it early, I had one hacked out of my hooter in the same area several years ago.

Hopefully they can get you healing up quickly. Appreciate the fact you shared this and the heads up to everyone on getting themselves checked out.

I am sure that lots of us did not cover up as we should when we were younger. We even get Sun in the UK sometimes....... affraid

Hi LCB
Good to see things are looking better, heal well
Anyone else reading this please do not fuck about if you notice a mole darkening up, becoming irregular in shape or raising it'self up, get your doc to have a look, these things kill
Stay safe and well all

So, a stitch on the snoz, saves having 3 nostrils (though some would consider that "art"). Glad you are on the mend LBC

Very good LBC. Thumbs Up
My wife's dad has a wad punch hole like that one on top of his head at the moment, about 1 inch round. He's 80 so they didn't even bother to do any cosmetics, it's healed nicely though, looks like a crater on the moon. Poor bugger spends his life travelling to and from brisbane for sun cancer surgery or radium treatment on face, neck, head, he never used a hat when younger. The sun's good for you Thumbs Up

Thanks for all the support guys. But most of all, put sunblock lotion on your face and go for a yearly skin check. A lot of harmful radiation passes through our helmet visors. It takes a pro to spot these things. If I'd let this one go another year, the damage would have been much worse.

That's a good looking flap repair, but you still look so sad... Wink

Yes, the doc did some fine stitching. I had just come out of sedation with Propofol in that pic, so more zombie than sad. drunken

Hah! Mine's bigger. You could stick a freakin golf ball in mine. On my ribs of all places. They found it when I went in to have something dodgy looked at, 2mm away from the melanoma.
The dodgy looking one was shite. The normal, mole-y looking one was melanoma.

The stitching is a horror show. Could have done better myself with a cactus thorn and a shoelace.

Now when I walk in to the dermatologist's office they have the door rigged to make that old timey cash register sound.

Keep an eye on that stuff boys and girls.
