♥ The Waiting Game

Each time I have to wait on a mole biopsy, it seems like an eternity before I get the results back.  I just want to get the results so I can put it behind me and try to enjoy the summer before my next mole mapping which is at the end of August. 

In the meantime, I will be having my oral cancer screening next week Wednesday to check out that spot on the back of my throat.  Since I don’t smoke, do drugs, abuse alcohol, or have any STD’s, I feel pretty confident that I have nothing to worry about.  But (there is always a but) with my Melanoma history and the fact that I’m in the special high risk category, there is a risk of Mucosal Melanoma. 

With my dad having had Mucosal Melanoma of the colon, my risk is automatically raised.

I would never wish cancer on anyone, not even my worst enemy.
