“There was one mole I had on my back that was skin cancer. I had eight inches of skin removed. It was definitely painful because it was a lot of skin, but most of the time, the removals haven’t been that bad.
“A couple years ago, I noticed one growing under my breast. I immediately looked it up online and found out that if a mole is growing and changing shape, you should go to the doctor – so I did.They took the whole thing out and they biopsied it. Thankfully, it was benign. I’ve gone through this process a couple of times and I am so grateful that most moles have not been cancerous.
“Now that I’ve gone through this a couple of times, I am extra aware of my skin, body and moles.””I’m writing this post with the hope that my story can get some of you in to see your doctor if you notice something wrong with your skin.’I’m writing this post with the hope that my story can get some of you in to see your doctor if you notice something wrong with your skin.
