Drs Appt Today

Here is my PSA for Skin Cancer...Please go have any moles that have either changed shape/color or look raised or are bleeding checked out by your doctor!! A friend of mine did this recently (after beating Breast Cancer) and discovered two separate areas of concern. They turned out to be very serious with her doctors calling them melanoma or almost melanoma. I have had a spot on my shoulder for a while that is almost black and very ragged edges. If you look at some pictures of what melanoma looks like, it looks exactly like this spot on my shoulder. I am going today for my doctor to look at it. So, especially being that we live in the desert and spend so much time outside, please go to your doctor if you have any moles that look odd.
