Thread: Crap On My face

  1. #1

    Crap On My face

    Not human feces you sick bastids.
    I got that Stage zero melanoma on my right cheek. I think it's called ensnufulufogous. Now, I have to go over to U of Penn to do something called MOHS surgery. I COULD Google it, but I know this is the premier medical advise site. I've had numerous lesions taken off my shoulders but never my face. Oh my face! My pretty, pretty face!
    I know we have other skin cancer treads but I like redundancy.
    Anyone ever have this done on their face? How long out of the water afterwards? How to prevent a return? I can't wear a shirt on my face. I've been really good with the ole SPF fity on my face but the damage is done. Does this mean I have to get out of the water every 20 minutes to re-apply? hit me wit knowledge lads. Thanks.

    Sorry to hear this CC.
    First, you need to stop going to dermatologists. They are scalpel happy and will cut any abnormality off your body for a biopsy.
    Second, depending on how deep and long the incision they give you will leave scar tissue that will be swollen for years.
    All the precautionary steps we take to protect us from the sun means nothing. Sun protective clothing, SPFs whatever's are all marketing ploys for sheeple.
    Now, I'm not saying melanomas don't exist and that they don't kill if left untreated but we also need to understand that 99% of the population will have some kind of cancerous growths in there lifetime.
    I'm more concerned these days with what's in my body than what's on it.
    Your doing the right thing. Get it taken care of and keep us posted. Hopefully with gods good graces you will grow old and your skin will leather and wrinkle and give you that distinguished look of an aged shreddah!

    Who is doing the surgery?? Dermatologist or plastic surgeon??
    Advice--make sure it is a plastic surgeon, and not because of cosmetics (we know you are ugly from birth..lol), but because they are be mo' betta at this stuff. just opinion.
    Sounds as if it was caught early; that be good.
    Oh...and if the plastic surgeon is a hot Asian chick, don't stare at her titties. Remember-SHE is holding the scapel!!

    btw--stage 0 is localized, has not spread. It is intraepithelial (in between surface layers) so it is easy to get. Surgeons are more better insuring getting out to the "surgical margins" than pimple doctors.

    Yeah fer sure nothing a little DIY cauterizing wouldn't cure

    In the absence of lit cigarettes, a soldering iron is always good.

  7. That sucks. sorry to hear.
    Not saying this is the answer, but I've heard very good things about Rick Simpsons Oils, specifically for melanoma.

    O Barry, it's a Plastic surgeon but I like Head High and the Kid's ideas too. All bets are off if it's an Asian girlie. I may need to burn lil Chavez with a lit cigarette to keep him calmed down.
    Thanks DQ, I'm already leathered, just waiting on wrinkles.
    Get yourself checked out DP.

    I have had melanoma twice, both times on the back. It will be all about getting the margins (meaning they will take a hunk). Plastic surgeon will do u right.
