Hi all, Happy New Year.
I received my appointment letter for the removal of the BCC on my nose on Christmas Eve. It is to be done by Mohs surgery on 20th January. I am dreading it, scared silly about it, and thinking of cancelling.
I have read some horrific stories, people losing bone as the cancer had spread, bad scarring etc. I am 65 and don't really want this.
I had to fight for transport to and from the hospital as I have no one to drive me. I was asked 'couldn't you get taxi's?' The answer was that I am a pensioner and at nearly £20 each way no I couldn't!
If I left it it wouldn't spread. Goodness knows how long it has been there, the dermatologist I had been seeing for a couple of years had never noticed it. It was only when I pointed it out and asked her to look as the spot on my nose wouldn't heal.
An advice would be appreciated.
