Squamous Cell Carcinoma

I had a Melanoma on my left arm. The Dermatologist/ surgeon took out an area a little bigger than quarter doing something called a Mohs procedure. They went pretty deep and did biopsies until gone. It healed with a small scar. The Dermatologist looks at it and the rest of the body every 6 mo. Yesterday she found a little Basal Cell Carcinoma and sent it for biopsy with the expectation it will have to be surgically removed. If they get these things early they can be removed. She tells me it is 77 years of my exposure to sun. I do everything I can to stay on the bike.
