it's not a tumor

A little bit ago I noticed a freckle on my left eyebrow. It seemed to come out of no where. Then Ashley went on a trip for 8 days, and when she came back she noticed that the freckle had gotten a lot bigger. After consulting with Kimber, our personal medical consultant - we decided to get it checked out.

I went to the Doctor. The doctor referred me to the dermatologist. After looking at the freckle or "rapidly growing lesion" as they called it in my files, Dr. Goldstein decided that I had two options.

1. Wait for a month and see what it was doing, then probaby do a biopsy
2. Do a biopsy now!

Because I am a man of action, I opted for the biopsy now. I laid down on my side, they numbed me up and they took a chunk out of my eyebrow. He warned me that this procedure would leave a small scar, and that because it is on my face and "not on my butt or back" that it is something to consider. I thought about it for two seconds, and then remembered how awesome scars on the face are. It was a no brainer.

I was numb pretty quick, and then I could feel that odd sensation where my flesh was being tugged at and stitched up.

What will transpire next on this blog was of great interest between Ashley and myself. Do you want to see a picture of the sample they took from my eyebrow? Obviously, If the readers are like myself, the answer is a resounding yes. However, if you are a wimp and a communist then maybe it isn't for you.

Whether you like it or not, behold my triumph over rapidly growing benign lesions:


Now that you've seen the gore, I'd ask you to participate in the poll.

So it wasn't anything? Did you get the results that quickly? That is good news if it is. I was worried.

serena,

i find out on friday, or monday next week. i have another appointment on monday to get my stitches out.

the doctor didn't seem to worried because it wasn't tender, nor itchy.

you'll note that the poll i created shows that people are agreeing with my decision!

this is more exciting than watching the presidential numbers come in.

Unfortunately, I am eating my lunch right now. So seeing the tumor was actually really disgusting. Sorry.

But I'm a wimp anyway. I can't even watch ER without dry heaving.
