Good news/bad news

My biopsy results came back today. A week honestly isn't that bad for how far they had to send them, and for all my teasing, I do know the lab is one of the best.
The one on my back came back as totally clear, no worries, I have another nice scar to add to the collection. I scar really easy.
The one on my leg - that's still hurting and looks a little infected - came back as moderate abnormal cell mutation. Basically the same thing that they found on my face last year. It means that its on its way to cancer, but we caught it before it got there. And, when he did the biopsy, the got it all. I knew he was going to do that so I wasn't surprised when they told me.
So I've just got to watch for any color or pigment to come back into the scar. Otherwise there's nothing to worry about.

I will admit to butterflies in my tummy when they called though. *grins*
Thanks for all the support, prayers and hugs.

Glad it was good news.

Thanks. :)

That is fabulous news!
May. 28th, 2009 04:47 am (UTC)
Yeah, it really is. *wipes forehead*
May. 27th, 2009 04:22 pm (UTC)
phew at least it was caught..

does suntannin [if the sun there's strong enough] affect the pigment?

May. 28th, 2009 04:48 am (UTC)
Yeah, exactly. :)
I honestly don't know because I'm not allowed out in the strong sun without super strong sun screen on. *grins* Or I'm just not allowed out at all.
May. 28th, 2009 05:25 am (UTC)
hmm not allowed out at all is kinda hard..

mayb keep that scar covered so the sun doesnt get to it? like house forever wears longs

Oh, it's not the scars. I'm just covered in moles so there's a pretty high risk of skin cancer for me. I'm just used to it. :) And its only around the beach, I can go out for a few hours around town.
Plus, my work schedule keeps me asleep when the sun is up, for the most part. :)

oh moles.. i have a fair bit of them as well & theres 0% chance of me avoidin the sun when im at the damn equator at 30+ degree celsius *roll eyes*

at least the sun is kinda avoidable for you

True enough. :) Yep, half the year we rarely if ever have sun. Sucks when it gets like that, but it makes it easier on me.
May. 30th, 2009 05:36 am (UTC)
yeah 'healthier' in a way
May. 30th, 2009 12:09 pm (UTC)
yep. *grins*
May. 27th, 2009 10:27 pm (UTC)
YEAH!! *hugs* so greatnes for you. That is verry, VERRY good newes. I bet you were so releived to get the results back. I'm waiting for some scans to come back and the waiting is agony.
May. 28th, 2009 04:49 am (UTC)
*hugs back*
I was. Its funny too because the one that came back as abnormal was the one I was worried about, not him. Oh well.

I hope the scans are all good. You're right that waiting is the worst part of the whole deal.
May. 29th, 2009 03:32 am (UTC)
It's a good thing to catch things early, so yeagh, it's good that the bad one was caught.

Half the stuff was good, the rest was inconclusive, so more tests. *sigh*
May. 30th, 2009 04:06 am (UTC)
Totally. :)
Don't you just hate inconclusive? That's what I kept getting for 21 years. Hope the new tests bring better news. Mainly so you can stop the tests and have the answers you want. ;)
