Hi all! So my story goes: i have dysplastic moles. Apparently hereditary. I have had approx 21 excisions, I think but am losing count now. 4 melanomas, many in situ and many dysplastic. I have scars all over my body. I am having to come to terms that this will be a life long struggle for me and my family. I am terrified of the one that will be missed because I have so many moles and continue having more appear. I cannot bring myself to use the word "cancer" and think of it as a skin condition. My boss once directed me to the cancer website and I just sat there and cried, maybe in denial I havnt had cancer! Or have I? Every few months the doctors keep removing moles and thankfully so because they have been either pre cancerous or melanoma. I know they cannot take them all. I can admit I'm scared!
