I Hate To Admit It…

Don't you just hate it when this happens?

All my life my elder brother, Denis, has been "The Smart One" in the family. So I really hate it when he says something that, once again, turns out to be right! (I hate it when my brother is right. - Well, a little.)

I have an appointment with a dermatologist this morning. While in Minnesota recently at a family gathering, Denis noticed a small scab on my forehead and said that I should let my doctor take a look at it the next time I am in the office. Turns-out my doctor suspects it is a basal cell carcinoma.

What I have read is that this is not a really serious thing, but I do need to have it looked at. …just to be on the safe side. I guess this is the price I pay for all those sunburns as a child in Miami! Thanks Denis for catching that!

Wherever you are today, I hope that you're taking care of yourself.

Thanks, Mike!

It's just one little spot. I am told they freeze it off in a simple office-based routine.
