MY biggest relief of the year thus far...
I DO NOT HAVE SKIN CANCER!
About a year ago I was given a positive diagnosis of basal cell carcinoma, a relatively harmless type of skin cancer that is usually just removed. I requested a second opinion, and they confirmed this, but told me it was likely to be a more serious "infiltrative" type that would need reconstructive surgery and an area of my face burrowing into!!
I had the biopsy in August, and after delayed appointments and several months of gradually increasing fear (and a weekend of shitting my pants), finally got an "all clear" result about an hour ago! So, basically, it isn't cancer, I'm not going to die and my face will remain intact!
Although, I'm pretty sure they could have just called me and told me several months ago, rather than making me wait 6 months for an appointment
