Waiting for results can be tough. The first time I had a mole removed, I was fine until later that day when I realized....I might have skin cancer right now! But, now, I figure, I did the right thing by getting a test. If something is wrong, I'll deal with it when/if it comes up. So much better than just worrying about a problem but never doing anything about it. If you do decide to get it removed, feel free to PM me while you're waiting for the results and we can talk it out.
Well, I was a very outdoors-y kid and I got sunburned allll the time. There was definitely talk about sunscreen and most of the time I try to be really careful, but as a kid away at summer camp....well, not so good all the time. I think we are all aware that skin cancer is a real concern so we all go to the dermatologist once a year and we pay attention to what's going on with our bodies. When I lived at home, I used to have my mom put lotion on my back at night and so she would always see if there was anything that needed attention.
It's a little scary knowing that it runs in the family, but at least I'm aware that it's an issue, I guess.
