It's baaack!

Well, today I noticed a small patch of rough skin between my ear and cheekbone. Just like the time a year plus ago, near the same area. Damn. Same thing. Looks just like the tiny bumps I ignored three years ago that turned malignant. A call to my dermatologist is on my to-do list first thing tomorrow. But, better than letting it get bigger and hope it's not malignant, too. Since today is the first time I noticed it, maybe it will be nothing. It's just the gnawing feeling that any kind of cancer never really goes away. And, I'm sure many of you with your various melanomas think the same. Thanks for letting me grump for a while.
