Went to the Dermatologist Monday to check a constant "dry spot" on my forehead. She just called and said it's skin cancer but in early stage so they're setting me up to have it removed using MOHS procedure. I googled it and doesn't seem too bad. Only other option given was radiation which I firmly said NO. Anyone with first-hand experience with this?

I had some skin cancer cut out two years ago. Dr used local, scalpeled a big hole in my skin, sewed me up, and sent me home. Sent the sample to be biopsied. Came back as cancer. Went back in, cut a little more to make sure that he got it all, sent the sample off. Came back good. It was no issue and I never felt anything after the numbing shots.

I've had 3 MOHS and didn't love it.....hoping I don't have another skin cancer but if I do I want to try radiation.

First took half the back of my ear off down to the cartilage. Had to do a skin graft off my chest. Next two were on my face and temple. After cutting the cancer out(process took 3 trys over 4hrs wait on labs) he further cut the wound into a football shape to pull the skin together. The pulled up skin was almost the size of my pinky finger. Granted after about 6 months the scar was almost invisible.

2 for me. One on the right side of my face, at about eye level. He said there’d be no scar, though he couldn’t pretty me up, but there was no scar. Other one was on my right forearm, and they took some serious meat. Got a long scar.

64+ years of too much sun finally got me. My spot is right above my left eyebrow. She took a pretty big slice just for the biopsy. Plenty of age lines there already so not too worried about a scar. No radiation for me again as I'm still dealing with the results of throat cancer radiation and chemo from 14 years ago.

Last Fall I had Mohs on my forehead, too. They take off a lot more than you think, but being on your forehead is a good thing. They'll sew ya back up along an existing horizontal line so it'll blend in pretty good.

When I get really hot or cold it shows up, but otherwise you wouldn't notice.

I had it last year on the back of my hand. The Mohs technique takes the minimum amount of tissue. I had a melanoma removed a couple of years ago and they took substantially more tissue. A lot depends on the size of the lesion and the depth they suspect the cancer cells go. Mine only took one pass to get it all. No scar.

not a big deal, have had 6 done.

local deadener, cut it out, wait on results, maybe cut some more.

forehead, right temple twice, top of head (that one was extensive), and 2 on my right shoulder.

none of them slowed me down any.

Way too many sunburns to count. Guess it finally caught up to me. I have been pretty good about wearing a hat while out working in the sun the last couple of years though.
This really gets you thinking though, especially having already survived a serious cancer round. Not a coincidence that we're having our wills drawn up next week. 3 surgeries in three weeks beginning in June.

I'm not entirely convinced that what we are putting on are skin is better than being in the sun. IMO its a lot of environmental factors among other things that is giving a rise to skin cancer rather than just straight sun exposure.


and yes, I've had basil cell


what got me off of using sunscreen was having a tube bust inside a tackle box and it strip the paint off a smithwick rouge.

Way back when, when I was in The Med Center in Houston, hoping they’d find my problem (the tumor), they gave me a big many-paged loose leaf binder. Many many personal questions and a big section was on sunburn I had as a teenager. How bad, how often, what body areas. Apparently it mattered to them, as a research hospital. But who remembers how many bad sunburns they’d had years before.

Anyway, when I was on the tennis court for many hours, before and after I retired, I used sunscreen almost all the time. I figured it was better than getting my freckled Irish skin burned.

I hate sunscreen and wearing hats. Long sleeve "performance" shirts don't work, they are hot as he77 and clammy. Will never wear jeans while outside in the summer unless hunting.

Not all sunscreens are the same. Even though they claim they are effective

Just has one cut out this year that should’ve been taken care of 2 years ago. 39 is too young to be dealing with that chit.

After the local deader you won’t feel anything until it starts itching. Doc took about a half dollar size from upper neck area.

I wore a cowboy hat every day until I went to Korea in 83. Hate wearing any hat now but I do for outside mowing, pool work, etc. I was only worried about my head getting burned, mainly because I'm bald(ing), not my body. I wear shorts and sleeveless shirts year-round. I will start going to the Dermatologist every six months now...and not just because she's beautiful and a hoot to talk to.

I live in those performance long sleeves with the hoods. There are different materials and they all work differently and you need the correct one of the activity you are doing.

PFG is very hot until you sweat into it or get it wet then it excels at cooling.

Magellan is great if you’re going to be sitting and not sweating or getting wet as they breathe better but the downside is they won’t retain the moisture as long to really keep you cool.

Dermatologist office called earlier. Said my Blue Light Therapy was approved by Tricare. They're going to do my arms first next Thursday. After what she said and me reading up on this, I'm not thrilled.

Psst... don't tell them what Tricare actually pays...

Good luck with the therapy, sir.
