For the last thirty odd years I have been sporting a spot next to my left eye. Slap bang where everybody could see it. It got bigger. I went to the doctor. He said it was an age spot and froze it. Ouch. It got rid of it. But it grew back. Again. And again. Each time it got bigger and uglier.
Here it is in all it’s glory ⇒
It was time to stop pretending it was a beauty spot. So I finally decided it was time to do something about it. Today I sought a second opinion. She told me that freezing doesn’t work on this kind of thing. Well, that explains why it kept growing back!
Options were discussed. I could just leave it. It was nothing to be concerned about in terms of potential health risks.
Or I could have it removed.
She could do it right away if I wanted.
And before I knew it, there I was, flat on my back, hidden under a sterile sheet with a numb face while the petite little lady doctor cut it out. Just like that! All for the princely sum of AUD 10.
Four stitches. Incision line following my hard earned wrinkles.
In seven days stitches will be out and I will have no ugly big brown splot on my face.
Yay! Only took 3o+ years 🙂
