Greetings from the rock with rivers of fire! I hope everyone is well,always.
Got the results of 4 biopsies on Tuesday. The two on my shoulder on previous wle's came back as keloid,on one,and a nevus with some disorder on the other. They both had really grabbed my attention with not only pigment, but incredible itching and pain. The one on my neck had to be sent to the university of Utah given "the challenging nature of the case and the patients extensive history of melanoma. " It came back as a Desmoplastic Spitz nevus, which is a new one for me. I'm guessing it resembles melanoma since it was sent away for confirmation? The fourth one, which I would have bet money on was melanoma since it was a dead ringer from a previous one came back as an AK with pigment. You just never know right!
Anyway, since no wle's needed on that round, we took off 3 of the most likely suspects on my back,all changing and begging for attention. To be continued…
Thanks as always to everyone contributing to this incredible place!
