So I went to the dermatologist for a skin check, by the way she didn't even mention anything about my alopecia to me probably because I told her that I stopped treatment but she didn't even seem interested in anything about it. I have had a little bubble type thing on the top of my head for probably about 6 months now, maybe a little longer. It has popped and come back a few times. I thought it was just maybe a wart or something..well it isn't. It is FRIGGIN skin cancer!!
So not only do I have alopecia and losing my hair, which I have come to terms with at this point in my life, but because of my alopecia now I have skin cancer on the top of my head. All those years when I said, oh I don't need a hat or anything, I am fine..well now I am regretting it! Atleast my scalp isn't exposed to the sun anymore now with my wig, but come on!!
I haven't officially heard it from my doc yet or heard what we need to do from here yet, but just had to vent. Hopefully they will just have to go in and maybe take some more skin and tissue from around the area. Hopefully we caught it soon enough so that they won't have to do more.
So moral of the story, cover your head, wear sunscreen, be careful! Even if you don't want to!
