I've had Gorlin's diagnosed for 11 years but BCCs for 20 years. I've just joined this group because of the following problem: I used to be able to have a lesion removed in the morning and go to work in the afternoon. Things have changed and now I get a bit angry when I'm told I have to have an op (not with surgeon - usually my poor partner). This time I had 4 lesions biopsies, all came back positive, two removed by one surgeon, told I had to have a wider excision and a skin graft a week later. I burst into tears and then cried again when I went to see the nurse to get the stitches out! I'm a man in his 50s and I find this tough! There us no psychological support where I go for treatment.
