For the past week, I have been reading various threads about skin cancer as I wait for the biopsy results from a spot on the top of my ear. I just received the news that it is squamous cell carcinoma. I am of course freightened about what this means and have many questions, but unfortunately the technician who delivered the news did not seem to be as knowledgeable about the situation as I had hoped. For example, I understand that the ear is a high-risk area for SCC and should be considered for urgent treatment. The technician made it sound more like a normal day of removing a harmless skin cancer, although she did mention that MOHS would be the method. I asked why there was no sense of urgency and she again said it was a standard cancer and procedure. She said it was considered "well-differentiated," which, according to Google, are cells that look like normal cells. This makes me wonder why then it is skin cancer. She was unable to tell me the stage, as she said that is determined during the MOHS procedure, which did not seem correct. I am scared, confused, and alone. I just wanted to say something to someone, even if it is only on a message board.
