May is Skin Cancer Awareness Month

Quote

May SkinCancer

I want to talk about a serious matter.  I’m sharing a painful and true story that I myself have experienced first hand.  I grew up in an time where we did not use sun block.  I was a fair skinned, blond hair, blue eyed person.   We used oil to tan our skin and lemons to lighten our hair. I never worried about protecting my skin when I was young.  As an adult I used a tanning bed in hopes that it would give me a base tan and maybe I wouldn’t burn so badly.   In 2016 I noticed what looked like a new mole that formed quickly on my face.  It was bothersome so I asked my doctor about it and another spot on my upper chest that was pretty discolored.  He sent me to a dermotologist to get it checked out.

There were 3 areas that had to be biopsied and the results came back with Basal Cell Carcinoma and Squamous Cell Carcinoma.  Melonoma is the third worst type of skin cancer and thank you God, I did not have any of that.  Basal cell is the most common form of skin cancer and Squamous cell is a little more serious but not as bad as Melonoma.  I had to have 3 surgeries to have them removed.  It was a scary time.  I was terrified of the 16 stitches across my forehead and would I be horribly marked for the rest of my life.  Thankfully I chose a great surgeon and 2 years later you can barely see the scars on my face.

Two years later, I still do not have any feeling on my forehead in the surgery area. I go to the dermatologist once a year and have a full body scan.  She checks for any new areas that may have developed on my skin.  I have had to have several pre-cancerous areas burned off.  As long as they are caught early, this may be all that needs to be done.  If they aren’t caught early, the suspicious areas could turn into Basal cell, Squamous cell, or the feared Melonama.  I strive to NEVER allow my skin to be burned ever again and I live on a lake and I’m a lake realtor.  I wear all kinds of skin protection and clothing to protect myself.  I have a reason to always walk out my door with a made up face.

20180410_114453 I have all kinds of stylish hats, and you can just call me the “Hat Realtor that always has a stylin hat and sunglasses on”.  I always carry sunblock on me.

Life is good and I’m more careful and aware.  Protect your babies and yourselves so that don’t have to go through what I did.  A burn may not affect you now.  It might be many years later that you will pay the price for that pretty tanned skin.  I have had to learn to appreciate my fair complection.
