The Truth About Detecting Skin Cancer-MainPhoto


On the day of my scheduled biopsy, I was a little nervous about it, but it went very well.  Dr. Russell even showed me the large suspicious mole in its little examination vial after she removed it. She also removed the other two moles with electrosurgery. Dr. Russell said that all three would look and feel like sores, but that they would heal within a few weeks.  She instructed me to keep them from getting dry by applying Vaseline twice daily. She also gave me several samples of the antibiotic Bacitracin, which I put to good use. Did the sores hurt? Yes, they were uncomfortable and painful.  However, they healed over quite nicely.
