My mom had the same thing on her nose. Removed and never came back. She died of something completely different many years later.

Best of luck.

Best wishes for a quick resolution Walt. Sounds like you caught it early.

Best wishes Walt. I had this same procedure done for a spot on my face just under my left eye. They only had to cut it once and got it all out. I was lucky. The hole was quite large (just a bit smaller than the size of a dime) but the doc did an excellent job and it healed well and today you can't tell anything was ever done. My prayers are with you.

Walt, I think you found it early enough, so the prognosis should be excellent.

I guess the thing to watch for with any mole is the "red skin" surrounding it.

It is not visible without a mirror, but were you able to feel its presence? Or was it your wife who alerted you to it?

What a wonderful thing to be doing in retirement. You get to do something you enjoy and you get to help people and animals when they need it. Humanity thanks you.

I smoked a turkey for Christmas. Today the young wife made 8 pints of broth with the carcass and I canned it.

I could feel it, that's why I looked in the mirror to see what it was. But I'd never seen anything like that before and the black dot was what made me call the dermatologist ASAP. It didn't look like a mole, but more like a small pimple, only black in color.

Just finished home brewing a 5 gallon batch of IPA beer to get me through the Winter. (My favorite retirement hobby!)

Went figure skating. Seems a lot of kids are out of school and were deposited at the rink by their parents. As I was getting off the ice, several skating moms asked if I was an instructor.

I thanked them for the impression and explained that no, I am not. And that I am a self taught skater.

Took a little dog in for a teeth cleaning. Little thing has been playing games with her food, acting as she didn't want to eat. She's had bloodwork done with no issues. She's a brachycephalic dog and they're know for issues due to the compact mouth. I expected she had a bad tooth, but no. Came home and promptly ate her food. After a total of $400 who knows. She's probably been playing DW for soft food.
