    Another cancer damn it!

    Well not a full blown case of THE BIG C, but I've got this thing growing on the side of my nose (see pic) so I went to the doctors today to have it looked at. It's nothing major about a cm in diameter slightly discolored and rough.

    She say it's a 'pre-cancerous' growth, with this name about a mile long which I promptly forgot.

    I have this cream to put on two nights a week. If it doesn't start improving in a couple weeks, it's time to see the dermatologist. This is just crap! I really wish who/what ever is pulling the celestial strings would just take my ass. I've been ****ed with too much in this lifetime to have to deal with any more ****.

    F**k me mom, I can't dance!

    Ugh.

    I hate cancer.

    I hope it's something that won't kill you.

    If its Actinic Keratosis, that usually responds pretty well to treatment.
    It means you'll be staying out of the sun though. Might want to invest in a trainer.

    Hope it's nothing serious, Stacey. The important phrase here is "pre". It might be nothing more than that. Let's hope so.

    Nah, didn't sound like that.

    What do you mean staying out of the sun? Just while this is being treated or the rest of my life?

    Good that you went so early. My brother pointed out something to me on his temple that was similar about two months ago, and he's still not seen a doctor.

    I hope it's completely benign. ((hugs))

    The treatment for AK can make you extremely sensitive to light. Basically, its a chemical that hinders cell mitosis and thus growth. Since cancer/pre-cancer cells have a more rapid growth pattern than regular cells, this effects them more so than it does regular cells. It makes one very sensitive to sun light though during treatment and for a few weeks after.

    Anyway, I didn't say it in the other post, but I'm glad you caught it early.

    Having had Basal Cell Carcinoma myself, (A couple of times), I would go to the dermatologist and have it cut out first thing. I don't stay out of the sun, but I am seldom without sunscreen.


    (FWIW, mine did not look like that)

    Stacy, just a thought and surely a weird one, your rats are using you for experiments are they... ? You never know now do you...

    I've known a couple people with this and it does respond well to the topical treatment. A few of them were pretty sensitive to the sun the day they put the stuff on and the day after. Other than that, about four months of creaming it, it was gone in the three cases I personally knew of.

    Stacey- my sister had some kind of skin cancer type stuff on her face. She had to put a cream on it daily and her face started to have purple blotches. She didn't want to tell us about this. How we found out was we went to visit her and saw the discoloring. It was on it's way to fading but she had explained that the cream "brings" out where the pre cancer is and takes care of it somehow. Her whole treatment lasted about 4 weeks.

    I am hoping that all goes well with you, sister. ((hugs))

    And as for you asking to be taken, well.......It probably ain't your time yet, na'mean?

    I'd almost say yes. Unfortunately i don't think a surface scraping would be adequate for the processing lab i've got access too...
