I went to see a dermatologist today for a general skin check-up. It’s been almost seven years since the last time I saw one.
But anyway, the dermatologist found two abnormal looking moles on the right side of my abdomen; one was about 5 mm and the smaller one is just the size of a fine-tip ink pen. She decided to do the biopsy for both for further testing. I am now wearing a Dora-band aid to cover the open flesh where the bigger mole was taken out. It is a bit of a discomfort.
I just hope that both are benign and nothing that comes close to cancerous.
Anyway, after telling her that my last dermatology exam was seven years ago, she suggested that every woman should see a dermatologist every year once you reach 40, if not then every two years. She said we tend to neglect other areas of our skin even though we pay a lot of attention to our facial skin.
So true! So please all my women friends, go see a dermatologist soon if you have not done so!
Other than that, the highlight of my day was being able to take an hour nap while letting Peanut watch his favorite show on PBS.
