The B Word

I've had a patch of red skin on my leg for almost a year now. Initially, the doctor thought it was ringworm and we tried to treat it as such. The patch didn't shrink at all, in fact, it grew larger and larger.
Two weeks ago my doctor gave me Diflucan to try to blast it away. That didn't work either.

So, this afternoon I'm getting a biopsy on the rogue patch.

Yep.
Biopsy.

I'm not scared. Yet.

I will keep my fingers crossed for you. I swear we live parallel lives. I have had two bouts of basal cell carcinoma on my face. Not fun! I keep telling my surgical dermatologist that I will have a whole new face by the time I am 40! Keep your spirits up!!!!

You write a whole post about how you may have cancer and then bury the results in a comment of a week old post. Seriously, woman.
