Last Friday, my husband went in to the dermatologist for what he thought would be a very minor procedure. A recent biopsy had revealed squamous cell carcinoma on both ears. The doctor started at 10:30 am and didn’t finish until almost 7pm. The cancer was far more extensive than the doctor had anticipated.
Good news is that the cancer is gone.
Unfortunately, so is half of one ear.
So if you ever, ever, ever have a sore that isn’t healing, please get into a doctor immediately.
Oh…and wear sunscreen! Maybe a big hat, too, like a beekeeper’s.
