"These 2 pics were actually 5 years ago and 1 year ago. This is my Melanoma PSA for the day/year. I was diagnosed w/ Stage 2 (just barely) melanoma 5 years ago today 5/24/12. The pic on the left was the day after my surgery on 6/12/12. The pic on the right was 5/24/16. The width of the mole was probably about the size of a pencil eraser. It was 'ugly'. Please please please, practice safe sun (avoid the sun , wear hats, use sunblock correctly, etc) and go to the dermatologist regularly. It is literally the easiest cancer to prevent. And also to treat when it is caught early! Melanoma does spread and WILL kill you, if not treated. It is not 'just skin cancer'. I was SO lucky in that I had surgery (under general anesthesia) and that was my treatment. More advanced Melanoma patients undergo chemotherapy or similar treatments, as well as surgery, and hope and pray for survival."
