    You would think in todays modern day there would be a cure for cancer right? Keep your chin up FCS we are pulling for you!

    I started getting Basal Cell when I was 30 years old. One to many sunburns as a kid and laying in the tanning beds for 10 years in my bodybuilding days probably didn't help. I have had a bunch of them, some being cut out on my face. Seems like I am just waiting for the bad stuff to come. I see my dermatologist every 6 months...but it doesn't make me feel any better.

    I also have little kids, my oldest (son) is the same age as yours, it must be hard on everybody. You and your family are now in our prayers, your going to do great!

    Best of luck

    Is there a lesson to be learned here I wonder? You think it would have made a difference if they would have found it 6 months to a year before? Maybe a biopsy a year ahead of time would have lessoned the severity?

    You really are at the mercy of your doctor you know? Like a technician, how good of a doctor are they?

    As they say, what do you call a doctor who finished last in his class?

    Doctor.

    Yes, if they got it if nothing else before it ulcerated we be looking at a totally different picture. Let alone Severely Ulcerated. But lesson learned and as much as we all want we can change what was and was not done. (unless you have a 50,000 Giga Watt Flux Capacitor on you)

    So short of that I try to look back to help other not make the same delay and enjoy the good thing of the past and look to the future (hopefully and long and bright one)
    If you help others then you are a Success

    Yo FCS go organic fresh fruits and veggies , flush your system out, and for gods sake never give up.
    If you cant defy the diagnosis you can sure as heck defy the prognosis.

    Peace.
    You sure are cocky for a starving pilgrim.

    Meantime, my LPBs (little plastic beings) are whipping up a soothing tonic using a variety of ingredients found on a model builder's bench---don't worry, my Type 3 covers most of the ingredients---



    Here's hoping the best for you and yours during this time.

    Doctor.
    I'm a firm believer that there is always a lesson.

    When I was 16, I had a wart grow on my left ring finger, and rather quickly. So, I went to the dermatologist my dad had used when I was maybe four years old. He had something removed by this doc.

    So, I go in, he numbs it, and cuts it out using an electric needle. Sort of like a plasma cutter for skin. Old technology, but very effective.

    So, he starts asking me if I lay out in the sun. Remember, this is like 1969. This doc was ahead of his time.

    He tells me of a patient he had just lost because he had exposed his skin to the sun for many years. I'm like, "whaddaya mean, he died of a sunburn?" So, he goes on to explain what a Melanoma was. Ever since, I have flirted with tanning once or twice, but then I remember that talk with him, and I usually talk myself out of more tanning.

    The good news is that if his patient had been seen by him today, he'd be alive. 41 years is a long time in medicine. A few years later, I lost a friend to bone cancer. She was 16, and first they took off her leg to stop it, and she kept up the treatments, but a year later, she was gone. Today, Kathy would be alive.

    So, a couple of years ago, when I noticed the edge of a dark mole changing shape on my stomach, I went to my GP. Off it ccame, and then the lab said "take off some more in that area." So, off comes some more. Then, the lab says, "no, we want MORE." At that point, my doc sent me to a plastic surgeon to get a much larger area of skin removed, and now I have a thin, pink line where he put me back together.

    Now half of the reason they do that is to cover their butts. But, the other half...well, I'll take the little scar.


    In a few years, I believe we will be able to turn off cancerous cells like a chemical switch. So, I learned a lesson from that doc, and he was able to learn lessons from his patients. Someone at Fox Chase, which was known as the American Oncologic Hospital until the following year, learned from Kathy. We are always getting closer to that cure.
