      As a youth, I never wore sunscreen (thanks 1970's) and later liked tanning beds (thanks 1980's). I definitely pay the price now at the dermatologist. Glad you went in and that they can do the Moh's surgery.

      Mojo for an uneventful procedure and quick healing.

      I've had 6 different basil cell carcinomas removed, face, shoulder, top of my head, plus many more precancerous spots frozen. I say if you got to have cancer, this is the one to have. Hope the surgery goes well.

      It turns out to be a full on surgery because the area is fairly large, complete with stitches. That one only takes a half hour though. He was not concerned at all so I'm going in at the end of January.

      Thanks everyone. I hate this kind of new experience.

      OK. I have to ask. How did you find the one on top of your head?

      I noticed a little flaky/crusty spot when I was combing my hair one day. My wife checked it and said it looked kinda funny. Since I'd had a couple spots before that, I knew it would be a basil cell. They did MOHS surgery on that one.

      Good to know. I would have dismissed that as a scab or something.

      When that scab doesn’t heal up in a reasonable time period, it’s probably time to get it checked. Since he’d had some before, it was easier for him to identify the new spot.

      Yeah it's pretty much to the point now that I can tell when a spot is an issue before it gets scabby/flaky. That allows the doc to freeze them off instead of cutting. I've probably had 30 spots frozen, mostly on my face, a few on my arms. It all goes back to those days in the sun before sunscreen was a thing.
