The Cut

Going into my dermo to get a melanoma cut out this arvo. It’s a baby skin cancer, Stage 1, like the last one he cut off, so everything should be cool and the gang, but I’ll be staying off the mat and away from the gym for a week with stitches.

Every time I get one of these things cut out or burned off I do wonder how many people in the early days of the colony died from skin cancer without knowing what the hell had killed them.

My dermatologist’s rock solid scientific answer is, “Probably heaps”.
