I went to the dermatologist for a skin exam last week. He found a suspicious spot on the back of my right shoulder. He was able to cut it out right then. He said it was likely a basal cell carcinoma. If you have to get cancer, that is the one you want. It is slow growing and almost never metastasizes.
He got the pathology report today and it was indeed basal cell carcinoma. The bad news is that it was deeper than expected. Now I get to have surgery to remove a larger and deeper area. It will leave a nice scar, but as anyone who has seen my body it won't be a problem. My days as a shirtless supermodel are over.
