    Because I am not a doctor, I could not say if it was dangerous or not. I can only say that I would not wait 3 months to have a SCC removed from anywhere on MY body. Good luck to you!

      Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts here, @gammy5! It’s hard to say as none of us are medical professionals, but we all have a certain comfort level with how long we’re willing to wait. I hope @justbob doesn’t mind me sharing that on his Q&A he responded that there had been a cancellation, so he’s getting in earlier (link to Q&A here: https://skincancer.net/q-and-a/is-delay-in-treatment-dangerous/)!

      JustBob, feel free to let us know if you have any updates, and wishing you both the best! – Nina, SkinCancer.net Team
