View Full Version : Stitches out and Biopsy Results.

August 14th, 2015, 11:27 PM
Went in this morning to get the stitches out. Saw my doctor. He got the stitches out without any problem. He had the biopsy it came back as Benign Squamous Keratosis, with actinic changes.

What the doctor says this means is that it was "Pre-cancerous" and if it hadn't been removed it could have progressed to a type of cancer that would require additional treatment.

So it is good news.

Thanks to everyone for the prayers, positive thoughts, kind words and concern.


I guess this means you are stuck with me for a while longer. And so there! (This applies to you also Stitching Woman) LOL

Guess that money I paid the doctor was well worth it.

I could have smacked you upside the head and gotten the same results at half the price.

Hugs, Li'l Bro!!
