I got my biopsy results for my scary mole from my dermatologist today. Everything is fine. I feel so relieved.
It could so easily have been skin cancer, even melanoma. I'm lucky that it wasn't. Maybe I won't always be so lucky. If you look at the "Inspiring Places" on my sidebar, you will see that a great many of them belong to people who were not so lucky.
May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month. Now is the time to educate yourself about taking care of your skin, limiting your exposure to the sun, wearing sunscreen, and giving yourself monthly mole checks. Lydia has been writing different blog posts related to skin cancer prevention this month, so check it out.
Lastly, watch this:
Yes, I know I'm preaching. But somehow melanoma has become my pet cause, and so many people choose to remain ignorant about the devastation it can wreak upon the human body. I consider it my duty to tell anyone who will listen about melanoma and other types of skin cancer.
Thanks for listening.
