It was around three weeks ago when I awoke one morning with this THING on my face. And I say *thing* because I'm a general expert at face things. I know my zits well, and this was no zit.
I was utterly perplexed at what it was, so I did what all rational people do....
Took pics, texted it to friends and family, and waited for their reactions. Then of course googled it which is always a bad idea, but in the end I just decided it was some sort of bite.
But days turned into weeks, and it never went away. It got better, but there was still just this strange little thing on my cheek.....Do you see that faint red spot with a circle around it? Weird, right? (And who needs to work on her eye makeup? Goodness. Estee to the rescue STAT)
You know that getting into a dermatologist is like the worst right? Well thankfully I'm vain and already had a standing appointment.
Mr. face doctor can clear up the mystery of the face...
"Mrs Bush, let me take a look at this place on your face here"
LOTS OF PULLING AND LOTS OF SILENCE
"Well, sometimes skin cancer can come up like this. An unexplained place on the face that just doesn't go away. We probably should biopsy it."
"I'm sure it's not, but we need to test it to be sure."
And just like that a needle was stuck in my face and skin was being cut out.
There may have been a brief second where a tear welled up in my eye, because you know I'm tough like that, but overall I held it together.
But the best part is I get to walk around with this little band-aid on my face looking like my Grandad until I heal.
When he put the thingy in the jar he did comment that it looked more like a cyst, which I guess is good? OH LORD.
So is this all age related? Is this paying for my sins of belly shirts and tanning beds in the 90's? I haven't decided yet.
But I'll keep you posted.
