JAVA'S! So, I've found a new home for Wednesday, and I blog-hop all day long looking at great pics! How about you?
My husband HAD a Cancerous mole on his neck. We just came home from the hospital, and... well let me back track just a bit. Whenever we go on vacations Dave loves roller coasters. Remember this one? See above. He's out from morning until night in the sun. Plus he's a truck driver, so left side of his face & the arm out the window & left leg in the sun all day. David had a very good friend, Gary. He was at a family party & his brother (a doctor) said he should get this funny looking mole on his back checked out. Three months later our dear friend died of skin cancer (Melanoma). It was because of that story Dave went to see the doctor & got a biopsy taken on this brown spot on his neck, and I thank the Lord that he did.
It turned out to be squamous cell (in-carcinoma).
Squamous cell carcinoma (SCC or SqCC), occasionally rendered as "squamous-cell carcinoma", is a histologically-distinct form of cancer. It arises from the uncontrolled multiplication of transformed malignant cells showing squamous differentiation and tissue architecture. Squamous cell carcinoma is one of the most common cancers, and frequently forms in a large number of body tissues and organs, including skin, lips, mouth, esophagus, urinary bladder, prostate, lung, vagina, and cervix, among others. Despite the common name, squamous cell carcinomas often show large differences, depending on where they develop, in their presentation, natural history, prognosis, and response to treatment. (from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia).
Yes, it was Cancer, but not the bad kind that kills you it rarely spreads, but if you don't do anything about it it could kill you. They ordered a complete x-cision of the mole, which they did today. Dave is fine, but my nerves are frazzled. My prayers were answered when the doctor said he got it 100%. So my friends supposedly this all starts when you're young, and being in the sun too long. So, when we go out we're going to get him a hat and sunscreen. David is my world, and he's changed a very dismal life into one happy and loving life for me. If your husband's work makes him an outdoor man show this too him and be cautious.
Do it because you care, and I've shared the news with you because... I care!
